Jeff Hornacek has had a roller coaster of a season in his first go-around as the New York Knicks head coach.Jeff Hornacek was hired as the New York Knicks head coach on the second of June, 2016. He is the third coach that the franchise has had in the last two seasons. The eight months since his hiring has been a complete roller coaster ride.
