The New York Knicks‘ coaching search has come to an end at last.

New York is finalizing a five-year deal with Tom Thibodeau to make him its next head coach, reports ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, who adds Thibodeau is expected to sign his contract in the near future.

Thibodeau has long topped the team’s list of head coaching candidates, which reportedly included Knicks interim head coach Mike Miller, Los Angeles Lakers assistant Jason Kidd, and current TV analyst Mark Jackson, among others.

The 62-year-old last coached in the NBA during the 2018-19 campaign with the Minnesota Timberwolves. He’s amassed a 352-246 career record in parts of eight seasons and was named Coach of the Year with the Chicago Bulls after the 2010-11 campaign.

Thibodeau has previous coaching experience with the Knicks, having served as an assistant from 1996-2003. He’s set to become the team’s 13th head coach since he last worked for the organization.

The Knicks are coming off another underwhelming season, finishing with a 21-45 record. New York last appeared in the playoffs in 2013.
