Biography

Michael Woodson grew up in Indiana and played collegiate basketball under Bob Knight at Indiana University (IU). In Woodson’s junior year, he was the leading scorer on the Hoosier team that went on to win the 1979 NIT Tournament. In 1980, the Hoosiers were led by Woodson to advance and win the Big Ten championship, bringing the team to the 1980 Sweet Sixteen.

Woodson continued on to the Professional circuit, where he was selected 12th overall by the New York Knicks in the 1980 NBA Draft and played in the league for 11 impactful years.

After serving as an assistant coach to the Milwaukee Bucks, Cleveland Cavaliers, Philadelphia 76ers, Woodson assisted the Detroit Pistons in winning the 2004 NBA Championship under Head Coach Larry Brown.

Thereafter, Woodson took over as head coach of the Atlanta Hawks for 5 seasons during his tenure, guiding the Hawks to the NBA Playoffs in each of his last three seasons and into the Eastern Conference Semifinals in his last two seasons. Woodson’s 206 career wins are fourth-best in Hawks franchise history.

In 2011, the New York Knicks announced Mike Woodson as an assistant coach and, later, interim head coach. Woodson was named the full-time head coach of the Knicks for the 2012-13 season, during which the Knicks compiled a record of 54-28 and secured the second seed in the Eastern Conference. Currently, Coach Woodson is an Assistant Coach for the Los Angeles Clippers.

Most importantly, Coach Woodson is known as a man of accountability, sportsmanship, as well as an advocate for player and personal development. He founded The Coach Woodson Las Vegas Invitational to create a special summer experience for basketball coaches, players and enthusiasts. The three-day destination brings together Coach Woodson’s friends, family and colleagues to enjoy time with each other and support a strong charitable cause.
