The New York Knicks and Tom Thibodeau have agreed to a five-year deal to make him the franchise’s next head coach. Thibodeau will be the 30th head coach in franchise history. Coach Thibodeau was an assistant coach with Knicks under former head coach Jeff Vanguandy in the ninety’s.

Thibodeau is known as an defensive minded coach that demand his players give one hundred percent on that end of the floor.

New York is counting on Thibodeau, who has a history in player development as a head coach and assistant, to put into place a program that will restore a competitive infrastructure with the Knicks. For now, Rose and Thibodeau inherit a roster that needs dramatic upgrades before a return to Eastern Conference contention is a realistic aspiration.

New York was 21-45 this season, missing the playoffs for the seventh straight year.
