Report: Knicks HC Mike Goodson's seat is getting hotter

The New York Knicks are on a nine-game losing streak that has began to cause panic within the organization and their fan base. Entering the season, the Knicks were viewed as one of the top contenders in the Eastern Conference, so their early struggles this season are unacceptable to many.

As a result, it looks like the hot seat for head coach Mike Woodson is becoming warmer by the day.

From Marc Berman at the New York Post:

The expiration date on owner James Dolan’s recent vote of confidence for coach Mike Woodson is approaching, according to sources.

While Woodson will coach the Knicks when they play the Nets on Thursday, it is unclear how much longer Dolan will allow this losing streak to go on. It has reached nine straight defeats and the team’s mental instability has become an issue. Dolan is obsessed with the Brooklyn franchise and a blowout loss could trigger changes — whether via trade or a coaching move.

While the Knicks have plenty of issues that are contributing to their losing streak, it makes sense that Woodson would be the team’s scapegoat.

They need to do what they can to make sure they turn things around quickly, especially if they want star forward Carmelo Anthony to return next season as he enters free agency.
