ESPN Removes Jeff Van Gundy From Knicks-Bulls Broadcast

In a late change, Jeff Van Gundy has been removed from ESPN's broadcast of the New York Knicks versus Chicago Bulls game on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Van Gundy was assigned to announce the game with Mike Tirico.

“We’re always reexamining our commentating assignments,” ESPN spokesman Ben Cafardo said.

Van Gundy reportedly would be considered by the Knicks to replace Mike Woodson, but the former coach said recently that he "felt badly" for Woodson to deal with speculation about his job status.

“He never wants to be a distraction,” a Van Gundy friend said Wednesday. “He’s very sensitive about current coaches.”
