The NBA regular season is over and now it's time for teams to make some important decision: to fire or not to fire their head coach.

We've already seen two coaches get fired at the end of their regular season run. Here's the latest:

“Jeff is a true professional who has worked tirelessly for this organization the last two seasons,” Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry said in a statement. “We sincerely appreciate his efforts and considerable contributions to the team and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

Associate head coach Kurt Rambis also was fired.
