Knicks say so long to coach Hornacek

The Associated PressNEW YORK (AP) — The New York Knicks will open their offseason with a coaching search.

The team fired coach Jeff Hornacek after two seasons, a person with knowledge of the decision said early Thursday.

The Knicks made the decision shortly after beating Cleveland on Wednesday to finish a 29-53 season. They lost more than 50 games and missed the playoffs both seasons under Hornacek.

The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because an official announcement isn’t planned until later in the day.

The firing was first reported by ESPN.
