Jeff Hornacek fired as Knicks coach after chaotic 53-loss season

Report: Knicks dismiss head coach Jeff Hornacek

"We sincerely appreciate his efforts and considerable contributions to the team and wish him well in his future endeavors".

Kurt Rambis, the associate head coach, was also dismissed, the Knicks said in a statement from the president, Steve Mills, and the general manager, Scott Perry. Van Gundy coached the Knicks for parts of seven seasons, leading the club to six consecutive playoff appearances and an Eastern Conference title. "We thank him for his dedication to NY and wish him the best moving forward".

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Knicks informed Hornacek, an Iowa State alumnus, that he was sacked once they returned to suburban NY after beating the playoff-bound Cavaliers 108-95 in Cleveland on Wednesday night in the regular-season finale.

The Knicks have made what is expected to be first of the several coaching changes this offseason and have joined teams like Milwaukee, Phoenix, and Memphis in the market.

Hornacek finished his time at the Knicks with a 60-104 record, leaving the team looking for a replacement.

According to Begley, Mills added that one factor the Knicks will aim at would be the coach understanding the complexities of today's players and the game, including the use of modern analytics and strength training.

Since his playing career, Stackhouse has coached the Toronto Raptors' G-League affiliate, Raptors 905.

The New York Knicks intend to reach out to Villanova head coach Jay Wright about their head coaching vacancy.

NY hasn't reached the playoffs in five seasons and has one playoff series win in the past 18 years. According to ESPN, Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry informed Hornacek of his fate upon the team's return to NY. "Management informed Hornacek of decision upon returning to NY late tonight".
