Woodson did a great job coaching the Knicks and led them to a win in the post-season. The Knicks went 18-6 in the regular season under Woodson and were much improved defensively. Knicks owners James Dolan said Woodson took control “under difficult circumstances” and “he was going to hold every player on our roster accountable.”
