Jeff Van Gundy led the New York Knicks to the playoffs six straight seasons from 1996 through 2001, but the team reportedly isn’t interested in hiring him as a head coach again.

On Monday, Ian Begley of ESPN.com reported New York has shown no interest in reuniting with Van Gundy even though the ESPN analyst “would be open to talking about the position if he were approached.”

The head coaching position is open after the Knicks fired Jeff Hornacek at the conclusion of their 2017-18 campaign.
