Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga has talked to New York Knicks about head coaching job

The Celtics may lose another assistant this season

As the New York Knicks continue to search for a replacement for Jeff Hornacek, Boston Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga told reporters Thursday that he spoke to the Knicks about their head coach opening this past weekend.

Larranaga has been with the Celtics since 2012 as one of Brad Stevens’ lead assistants. He and Micah Shrewsberry have manned the sidelines for the Celtics during summer league action as well.

Boston already lost an assistant late in the season when Walter McCarty accepted the head coaching job at his alma mater, the University of Evansville. Shrewsberry has also interviewed for head coaching jobs at Division 1 programs like Rhode Island and UMass in the past but has remained with the Celtics.

The direction the Knicks plan to take with their next head coach has yet to be seen, but the interest in Larranaga should only increase as time goes on.
