After falling nine of their past ten games, the New York Knicks fired coach Derek Fisher on Monday.

Fisher went 17-65 in his first season with Knicks in 2014-15. While the Knicks had improved to 23-31 this season, a five game losing streak, plus several personal issues lead to Fisher's dismal after less than two seasons.

Fisher was hired by team president Phil Jackson to replace Mike Woodson and help lead the struggling Knicks back to the playoffs.

According to ESPN, Jackson said that he and team GM Steve Mills made the final decision on firing Fisher.

Assistant Coach Kurt Rambis will serve as interim coach.
