New York Knicks fire Jeff Hornacek as head coach

Jeff Hornacek led the Knicks to a 29-53 record this season and was 60-104 in his two seasons with the franchise

Apparently, the New York Rangers aren't the only tenant at Madison Square Garden without a head coach these days.

The Knicks will now be looking for their 11th coach since Jeff Van Gundy left in 2001.

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

According to Wojnarowski, Knicks management told Hornacek of their decision when the team returned to NY after their win over Cleveland in the season finale on Wednesday.

NY defeated the Cavaliers 108-95 earlier Wednesday.

The Knicks finished this season at 29-53, going 5-20 after the season-ending knee injury to Kristaps Porzingis.

This is the second time Hornacek has been dismissed from a head coaching position in the National Basketball Association, having already been fired by the Phoenix Suns in the midst of the 2015-16 season.

Wojnarowski also reported that former Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale, former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt, former Golden State coach Mark Jackson and Jerry Stackhouse, coach of the G League Raptors 905, will all be considered for the vacancy.

Hornacek was hired by then-team president Phil Jackson and then-GM Mills prior to the 2016-17 season. Overall, Hornacek was 60-104 during his tenure in NY.

The Knicks have won just one postseason series since then and didn't get close to competing in one under Hornacek, running their streak to five straight 50-loss debacles.

This season, Mills and Perry said they'd evaluate Hornacek based on the development of younger players and the team's improvement on defense over the course of the season.
