Mike D'Antoni Out As Coach Of Knicks, Woodson Takes Over On Interim Basis

Mike D'Antoni is out as head coach of the Knicks.

A source tells Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated that D'Antoni didn't step down and that it was a mutual decision.

Mike Woodson will take over as interim coach of the Knicks, according to a source.

Phil Jackson has long been mentioned as a potential replacement.

Reports this week indicated that Carmelo Anthony's frustration with D'Antoni's system came to a head. D'Antoni's fastpaced, pick-and-roll style offense never meshed well with Anthony, who often operates near the elbow.
