Mike Brown might be getting another head coaching chance. At least, he has a chance to get another chance. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Brown is among the at least nine candidates the New York Knicks have lined up for interviews for their head coaching vacancy.

Of course, the Knicks are notoriously poor at, well, everything, but especially hiring head coaches and until recently, front office executives. The Knicks have had five head coaches in the last five years, with Mike Woodson, who is among the interviewees, the last head coach to lead the team to a winning season and a playoff series win back in 2013.
Brown, who is an associate head coach with the Warriors and head coach of the Nigerian Men’s National Team, has been the head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers on two separate occasions and head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers once, in that nightmare period they had with the supposed dream team of an old Steve Nash, a mostly washed up Dwight Howard, aging Pau Gasol and Kobe Bryant and Metta World Peace. It did not go well and Brown was fired five games into the 2012-13 season.
