Knicks give Woodson contract extension
New York, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Knicks gave head coach Mike Woodson a multi-year contract extension on Friday.
Woodson was named interim head coach when Mike D'Antoni stepped down on March 14.
"Mike took over the team under challenging circumstances and made it clear, starting on day one, that he was going to hold every player on our roster accountable," said Madison Square Garden Company executive chairman James Dolan.
"We saw a significant improvement since Mike took over and believe our team will only keep improving under Mike's direction."
