There had been talk that eventhough Mike Woodson had done such a good job of turning the New York Knicks around and got them into the playoffs, the management wanted to go after Phil Jackson.

After all, Jackson is a former Knicks player and was a member of several of their greatest teams in franchise history.

But all that speculation is done and over with as the Knicks on Friday decided to keep Woodson, the former Indiana University basketball star.

New York removed the interim coach tag and gave Woodson a multiyear contract extension. It was a reward for turning around a turbulent season into a playoff participant.

Woodson took over on March 14, replacing Mike D’Antoni and led the Knicks to an 18-6 record.

They lost to the Miami Heat 4 game to 1 in the first round of the playoffs. That one win snapped an NBA-record, 13-game postseason losing streak since 2001.
