Mike D'Antoni's out. For now, Mike Woodson is in. But who is the permanent solution as the next Knicks coach?

We asked Newsday.com readers to select their favorite from a list of candidates. In the end, it was the "Zen Master" in a landslide:

Who should be the next head coach of the Knicks?

Patrick Ewing -- 17%
Phil Jackson -- 42%
Jerry Sloan -- 6%
Jeff Van Gundy -- 16%
Herb Williams -- 3%
Mike Woodson -- 8%
Someone else -- 8%

Our next Knicks poll asks readers what Jeremy Lin's role should be under Woodson. Star? Starter? Reserve? Or bench warmer? You can vote on the right side of the blog.
