Mike Woodson still focused on NBA coachingPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s New York Newsday reporting on former Knicks head coach Mike Woodson:
As the Knicks continue pursuing Steve Kerr to be their new coach, their old one is hoping to get back in the game.
Mike Woodson, whom the Knicks fired April 21, said he wants to coach next season.
“My interest right now is still coaching,” Woodson said during a phone interview promoting his golf tournament in Las Vegas in July. “I enjoy doing it. I’ve been doing it for the last 20-plus years and I love the NBA.”
Woodson still has one season remaining on his Knicks contract, but he said he doesn’t want to take a year off. The Lakers, Jazz and Warriors have openings. But it doesn’t appear Woodson is a candidate for them at this point.
