NEW YORK (AP) -- Isiah Thomas was fired as coach of the New York
Knicks on Friday, ending a year fraught with embarrassing episodes
on and off the court.
Thomas, the coach for two seasons, will remain with the
organization reporting directly to new president Donnie Walsh, a
rapid fall for Thomas who also was team president a little more
than two weeks ago.
Walsh took over that role April 2, and his first big decision
was to change coaches as he begins the process of turning around a
team that never won a playoff game in Thomas' tenure. The Knicks finished 23-59, matching the franchise record for losses, in their seventh straight losing season.
