NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Mike Woodson won’t head into this season as a lame-duck coach.

Woodson’s option has been picked up for the 2014-15 season, the New York Knicks announced on Monday.

He’s gone 72-34 since taking over for Mike D’Antoni in March 2012. The Knicks won the Atlantic Division last season with a 54-28 record, though they were ousted by the Indiana Pacers in the second round of the playoffs.

“I have long respected Mike and think he has done a remarkable job since becoming the head coach of the Knicks,” general manager Steve Mills said a statement. “After spending time with him recently, it is clear that picking up his option is an easy decision.”

Mills was named the team’s GM last week. He replaced Glen Grunwald, who will remain as an advisor.
