As the franchise spirals with a ruddlerless roster, the New York Knicks fired coach David Fizdale on Friday.

The New York Knicks have sacked head coach David Fizdale, the struggling National Basketball Association franchise announced.

You have probably heard the big-name candidates like Mark Jackson, Jeff Van Gundy and Kenny Smith, especially since they all have big profiles now as regulars on television and have ties to either NY or the Knicks. His.202 winning percentage with the Knicks is the fifth-worst with a single franchise, with a minimum of 100 games, over the past 30 National Basketball Association seasons.


Miller, not to be confused with the recently retired sharpshooter, was named the G League's Coach of the Year in 2017-18 after leading the Westchester Knicks to a franchise-record 32 wins.

For weeks, Fizdale has been walking a razor's edge.

Ramona Shelburne recaps the struggles of the Knicks' coaches over the previous two decades and why they have continued to happen.


This season marked Miller's first on the Knicks' staff.

Fizdale started out his second season with the Knicks with a 4-18 record, which followed last season's 17-65 record.

Perhaps no one makes more sense than former NBA All-Star Chauncey Billups, who played for the Knicks in 2011 and has connections to the team's front office (since he played under current GM Scott Perry in Detroit).
