After two seasons, the New York Knicks have reportedly fired head coach Derek Fisher.
According to ESPN, after a 23-31 start this season and losing nine of 10 games with five in a row, the Knicks reportedly decided to go in a different direction with Assistant Coach Kurt Rambis serving as interim.
Fisher, who was hired by team president Phil Jackson to turn around the New York franchise, had no previous head coaching experience. Despite the lack of experience, Jackson and Fisher have a history together after Jackson coached the Lakers, with Fisher as point guard on the team that won five championships.
The Knicks, ranked 12th in the Eastern Conference, haven’t won a title since the 1972-73 season.
Fisher was brought in to replace then Head Coach Mike Woodson, who went 109-79 in parts of three seasons in New York.
