Report: Clippers add former Knicks coach Mike Woodson to staff

Wednesday July 9th, 2014

Mike Woodson will join the coaching staff of the Los Angeles Clippers, according to CBSSports' Ken Berger.

Woodson was fired as head coach of the New York Knicks after the team posted a 37-45 record and failed to make the playoffs. Woodson has qualified for the playoffs in five of his nine seasons coaching in Atlanta and New York.

Woodson also played 11 seasons and was an assistant for several teams, including the Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks.

The addition of Woodson comes after the Clippers watched two assistants (Tyronn Lue and Alvin Genty) leave for other assistant positions and one (Kevin Eastman) take a front office job.

Berger also reported that Clippers coach Doc Rivers is targeting Lawrence Frank -- who was reassigned from his assistant job with the Nets -- and Wizards assistant Sam Cassell.
