Knicks Fire Jeff Hornacek After 2 Seasons

Report: Knicks dismiss head coach Jeff Hornacek

The decision to fire Hornacek was made by Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry. "We sincerely appreciate his efforts and considerable contributions to the team and wish him well in his future endeavors".

His top assistant, Kurt Rambis, was also fired. The loss brought New York's record to 29-53, and left the Knicks with the ninth best odds in next month's NBA Draft Lottery.

Jeff Hornacek was hoping to convince New York Knicks brass that he deserved another season as the team's head coach during Thursday's exit meetings.

Things have been a little old school during the last few years in the Big Apple, with remnants of Phil Jackson's tenure still in place, despite his dismissal prior to the start of the 2017-18 season.

Overall, Hornacek was 60-104 during his tenure in NY. He spent six-plus seasons with the team during his 17-year career and is held in high regards by most Knicks fans.
