It looks like another year will pass without Knicks great Patrick Ewing landing a head-coaching job.
Yahoo.com reports that Bobcats owner Michael Jordan informed Ewing that he will not get the vacant head-coaching job he interviewed for two weeks ago. Ewing faced competition for the position from former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan, former Blazers coach Nate McMillan and Warriors assistant Mike Malone. A handful of other candidates had also interviewed with Charlotte.
Ewing has served as an assistant coach for the Magic the past five season, but with Stan Van Gundy’s recent firing he will now look for another assistant’s position.
Despite their rivalry on the court, Ewing and Jordan were close friends off it.Follow @NYPostsports
