NEW YORK – New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher has been fired after less than two seasons, the team announced Monday.

Fisher has been relieved of his coaching duties after losing nine out of the last 10 games, according to team president Phil Jackson.

He compiled a record of 40 wins, 96 losses during his tenure with the team.

The former Lakers guard was handpicked by Jackson to lead the team.

Associate Knicks coach and ex- Minnesota Timberwolves coach Kurt Rambis will take over in an interim capacity.
