Tom Thibodeau is reportedly the "heavy favorite" to become the next head coach of the New York Knicks, sources told Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.

Thibodeau is so confident of receiving the job that he is making calls to assemble a coaching staff.

Thibodeau and Knicks president Leon Rose previously worked together while Rose was still an agent at CAA. 

Mike Miller and Kenny Atkinsons also remain candidates for the role.
