Former New York Knicks head coach Mike Woodson could land himself a new job ahead of next season's NBA campaign.

The New York Post believe Woodson could be lined up to replace interim head coach John Loyer at the Detroit Pistons.

Woodson was relieved of his duties at the New York Knicks on Monday after Phil Jackson made the decision to dispatch of the experienced coach's services.

The 56-year-old head coach was shown the exit door after failing to guide his side to the playoffs.

The Knicks finished just one place behind eighth place which meant they missed out on the opportunity of fighting it out for the NBA Championship.

However Woodson is still said to be attracting interest from other franchises - despite underachieving in his final season at Madison Square Garden.

The Detroit Pistons, who also missed out on a playoff spot, may have to beat off competition from the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Indiana Pacers if they are to lure Woodson to The Palace of Auburn Hills.
