Per Sports Illustrated’s Sam Amick via Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski:

Mike D’Antoni has resigned as head coach of the New York Knicks, sources confirmed to SI.com. D’Antoni and team owner James Dolan mutually agreed to end the coach’s three-year run after two losing seasons and a current 18-24 record.

Assistant coach Mike Woodson will take over immediately.

Looks like D’Antoni is the first casualty of Carmelo Anthony’s selfish play—well, the first individual; the team has already suffered since Melo returned from injury and squashed all the momentum the Knicks built during the emergence of Jeremy Lin. Nice job, Melo.
