New Knicks president Phil Jackson announced that the entire coaching staff was relieved of their duties in a release.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mike Woodson and his entire staff,” Jackson said. “The coaches and players on this team had an extremely difficult 2013-14 season, and blame should not be put on one individual.
