Knicks' Mike Woodson: ‘I’m going to be back’


New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson doesn’t have a lot of job security as of late. There were reports that he could be let go around the All Star break, but Woodson is saying he doesn’t know anything and expects to be back.

Via Ohm Youngmisuk of ESPNNewYork.com:

Woodson was asked if he has received any assurances that he will definitely be back after this weekend’s break.

“Again guys this is not about me,” Woodson said at the Knicks facility on Monday. “Unless you guys know something I don’t know, then the only thing I can say is I’m going to be back.

“Unless you guys know something, I’m the coach of the Knicks and that’s all I know at this point.”

Of course, who really openly discusses someone’s impending firing with them before it happens. It kind of defeats the purpose of firing which almost always comes without forewarning, you might expect it… but you weren’t warned it was coming.
