The Knicks made the firing of David Fizdale official on Friday evening, naming assistant Mike Miller as the team's interim head coach.
Miller, 55, has been an assistant with the Knicks this season after spending the previous four seasons as the head coach of the team's G League affiliate, the Westchester Knicks.
Miller was named the G League Coach of the Year with Westchester following the 2017-18 season. Miller led the Knicks to a 32-18 record that season, the best record in the Eastern Conference.
Miler has 30 years of coaching experience, most of which coming at the collegiate level. His career began as an assistant with Western Illinois in 1989, and he later got his first college head coaching job with Texas State in 1994. He joined the NBA ranks in 2013, when he was hired by the Spurs as an assistant coach for their G League affiliate, the Austin Toros.
Charania has also reported that the Knicks are promoting Keith Bogans, who was an assistant with Westchester, to the NBA level to be a part of Miller's staff. Keith Smart, another Knicks assistant, was let go along with Fizdale.
