Selected by New York Knicks

Michael Dean "Mike" Woodson (born March 24, 1958 in Indianapolis, Indiana) is a retired American basketball player and former head coach of the NBA's Atlanta Hawks.

Woodson took over the job from Terry Stotts prior to the 2004-05 NBA season. He came to the Hawks after a stint as an assistant coach on the 2003-04 Detroit Pistons NBA Championship team and was a long-time assistant under Larry Brown. Woodson was known for getting the most of defensive players, allowing teams coached by him and Brown to limit opponents to just under 42% shooting. Woodson played college basketball at Indiana University and was a protege of legendary coach Bob Knight. He was the leading scorer on the 1979 Indiana team that won the NIT championship.
