Knicks fire Jeff Hornacek, already have replacements in mind

Jeff Hornacek

The New York Knicks have fired Jeff Hornacek after two seasons on the job.

The team informed Hornacek of the move after the Knicks arrived back home following their regular season finale in Cleveland, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. News of the firing comes the same day that Hornacek said he was seeking clarity about his future with the team. Hornacek had a year left on his contract.

The Knicks went 31-51 and 29-53 under Hornacek, though this season was marred by the loss of Kristaps Porzingis. Expectations could not have been very high with their star player suffering a season-ending knee injury, but that didn’t spare Hornacek.

Knicks president Steve Mills and GM Steve Perry will have a chance to hire their coach. Woj says they are expected to reach out to David Blatt, David Fizdale, Mark Jackson and Jerry Stackhouse. Jeff Van Gundy has also been mentioned as a potential candidate, as well as Doc Rivers.
