Report: Knicks Assistant Coaches Sign Through Next Season

According to Marc Berman of the NY Post, all 3 of Mike D’Antoni’s assistant coaches have signed extensions for next season.

“A source said Mike D’Antoni’s assistant coaches — Dan D’Antoni, Phil Weber, Herb Williams and Kenny Atkinson — have signed contract extensions for next season, though the club has not and will not announce it. D’Antoni has plans to add another defensive assistant to the staff.”

I like the current coaching staff and I’m pleased to see that they’ll be back next season. I’m also excited for D’Antoni to hire a defensive coordinator. We need one and I’m praying that Lawrence Frank isn’t snatched up by Detroit and that he’ll come to be our defensive coordinator. If he’s the coach in Detroit then other names I have heard are former Oklahoma Sooner head coach Kelvin Sampson, Memphis assistant Dave Joerger and Orlando assistant Steve Clifford. There hasn’t been much news lately about the search although the Knicks are currently trying to find the right man for the job.
