NEW YORK (AFP) - Tom Thibodeau was named coach of the NBA's New York Knicks on Thursday (July 30), taking on the task of reviving one of the league's sickliest franchises.

After multiple reports last week talks were being finalized on a five-year deal, the Knicks announced the hiring of 2011 NBA Coach of the Year, a former Knicks assistant coach.

The Knicks have struggled through six consecutive losing seasons, have managed only one playoff series win since 2000 and have not won the NBA title since 1973.
