The New York Knicks on Friday named Mike Woodson their next coach, removing the interim tag from his job title.
The team announced that Woodson had signed a multiyear extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"I'm very humbled and honored to continue coaching the franchise where I started my NBA career," Woodson, who was drafted by the Knicks in 1980, said in a statement. "Our goal is to build off the success we had at the end of last season and to continue our quest of bringing an NBA championship to Madison Square Garden."
