This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has been following the New York Knicks, even slightly, this season as the team as officially announced that they have relieved head coach Jeff Hornacek of his duties.

The New York Knicks plan on reaching out to Villanova's Jay Wright about the team's new head coaching vacancy, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. Kurt Rambis, the associate head coach under Hornacek, was also dismissed. I just love going to work every day.

Hornacek was hired by then-team president Phil Jackson and then-GM Mills prior to the 2016-17 season. Those three teams made coaching changes during the regular season, inserting interim head coaches.

Mills said he and Perry were evaluating Hornacek and the Knicks this season on 10-game intervals and saw progress in some areas but not in others.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Knicks will open their offseason with a coaching search. "He played the hand he was dealt". But they tailed off toward the middle of the season and then completely collapsed late after All-Star Kristaps Porzingis tore his ACL on February 6.

But first, the Knicks have to get a coach. Though he was sacked after that year (2014) and Golden State won the title in 2015, he is credited with building the foundation that has led to the Warriors' success.

Perry said there's no timeline for naming a new head coach. While he's spent his time working as an analyst, rumors of him clashing with management in Oakland seems to be a reason why he hasn't been able to secure another head coaching job in the National Basketball Association. Anthony and Porzingis were not a natural pairing and Jackson's biggest moves - signing Joakim Noah and trading for Derrick Rose - were duds.

Hornacek tried to preach patience late in the season as the losses piled up with a young roster that defended dismally.
