Knicks' Woodson not worried for job

The SportsXchange

New York Knicks coach Mike Woodson said Thursday he is not worried about losing his job.

In an interview on ESPN New York 98.7 FM's "The Stephen A. Smith and Ryan Ruocco Show," Woodson said that he is confident the Knicks (3-8) will turn things.

"I'm going to continue to coach this team and eventually I'm going to get us over this hump and get us on the winning track," Woodson said.

Woodson said he is not concerned about getting fired.

"Absolutely not," he said. "I'll never feel that way because, again, I'm paid to coach. I'm the Knicks' head coach."

The Knicks have lost four straight and six in a row at home.

Woodson said he heard "Fire Woodson" chants from fans late in home losses to San Antonio and Atlanta this month.

Woodson, who is under contract through the 2014-15 season, also said that he was encouraged by the Knicks' play in their overtime loss to Indiana on Wednesday.

"I thought it was a positive night for our ballclub," he said.
