(NEW YORK) — New York Knicks interim head coach Mike Woodson shot down any rumors about talks between him and the organization about removing the interim tag and making him the head coach next season.
The New York Daily News reported Tuesday that Woodson and the team have had preliminary discussions about making him the new coach.
“That’s not true, not at all,” Woodson said after practice Tuesday.
But did winning Game Four of the Knicks’ first-round playoff series against the Miami Heat, snapping the Knicks’ 13-game postseason losing streak, help his cause in possibly becoming the new head coach?
“It’s not about Mike Woodson and my contract and where I go from here,” Woodson said, according to the Daily News.
