The New York Knicks have expanded their coaching search to four men. Here are five facts about each potential head coach.

The New York Knicks search for a head coach, once limited to just two men, has extended to four. Knicks president Phil Jackson met face-to-face with Frank Vogel and Jeff Hornacek, both of whom coached NBA teams in 2016, in Los Angeles last week.

Interim head coach Kurt Rambis is considered the front-runner for the job, and New York interviewed former Cavaliers coach David Blatt in late April. Rambis finished the year 9-19 after Jackson fired Derek Fisher midway through the season.

The Knicks are one of four remaining teams with a coaching vacancy, including the Orlando Magic, Houston Rockets and the Memphis Grizzlies.
