The New York Knicks dismissed coach Jeff Hornacek early Thursday morning, league sources told ESPN.

Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry informed Hornacek of his firing upon the team’s return to suburban New York following a flight back from Cleveland, where the Knicks beat the Cavaliers 110-98.

Hornacek had one year left on his contract. Kurt Rambis, associate head coach under Hornacek, was also dismissed.

The Knicks went 60-104 under Hornacek, the sixth-worst record in the NBA over that stretch, according to ESPN Stats Information.
