Report: Knicks coach Mike Woodson could end up at Indiana University

Despite a current five-game winning streak, it has been a rough season for the Knicks, and head coach Mike Woodson is unlikely to last with the team beyond this year.

But Woodson, who has never coached college basketball, would be a top candidate at Indiana University -- his alma mater -- should current Hoosiers coach Tom Crean not return, a source told Frank Isola of The New York Daily News.

Several prominent IU boosters are "pushing to buy out Crean and install Woodson, a product of Indianapolis," according to the report.

The Knicks are 26-40 heading into Saturday's game against the Bucks at Madison Square Garden, 3.5 games behind the Hawks for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. And Woodson "is resigned to the fact" that this will be his last season with the Knicks, regardless of what happens with the Phil Jackson situation, according to Isola.

Indiana (17-15, 7-11) lost in the first round of the Big 10 tournament to Illinois on Thursday, the Hoosiers' third straight loss to end the season.

They were the Big 10 champions and a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament last season before losing in the Sweet 16 to Syracuse.
