Stan Van Gundy Rejects Knicks Coaching Job

Stan Van Gundy rejected the New York Knicks coaching job this past week.

This past week, Van Gundy appeared on ESPN Radio and discussed the vacancy in New York. He did not mince words on his lack of interest in the position.

“I’m not really interested in the New York Knicks, no,” he said.

“First of all there’s a family history there. If anyone would be interested in that — and I’m not sure he is either — it would be my brother.

“And No. 2, I just — I’ve said this, I’m different than a lot of coaches in looking at jobs. To me it’s all about who you work for and who you work with. Everything I’ve seen over the last few years with that organization says that it’s extremely dysfunctional.”

In Van Gundy’s estimation, the Brooklyn Nets job is significantly more appealing than the Knicks job.

“Of the two, the Nets are the better job,” he said.

“There’s no question about that right now. The organization has been more stable. They’ve won more games. They have more talent.”

Who will ultimately end up the coach of the Knicks? Time will tell.
