Woodson changing agents to keep job?
New York Knicks interim coach Mike Woodson may improve his chances of keeping the job if he changes agents, SI.com reported on Saturday.
The New York Daily News first reported that the Knicks approached Woodson about a contract extension but that he would have to change agents before further talks resumed.
Woodson’s agent, Joe Glass, is recovering from a pelvis injury. Woodson, according to SI, informed the Glass family that he is planning to switch to Creative Artists Agency, which represents several members of the Knicks.
Glass, 87, represented former coach Larry Brown when Brown and the Knicks ended on ugly terms in 2006.
“Hey look, Mike deserves the job I’m trying to take the high road here, but I certainly won’t be asking anyone at the Garden for directions,” Glass’ son Keith told SI.
The Knicks lost to the Miami Heat in five games in their first round playoff series.
