Knicks assistant coach Kenny Payne, who joined the team this season after a long tenure as an assistant at Kentucky alongside John Calipari, has received a lot of credit from players for his work on their development this season. But there are reports that he could be out shortly.
According to multiple reports, Payne is a front-runner for the DePaul coaching job, where he would reunite with DePaul athletic director DeWayne Peevy, who worked at Kentucky with him for years. While Yahoo! Sports' Jeff Goodman said that Payne is the target, the Chicago Tribune reported that the school could also interview Loyola Chicago’s Porter Moser when the team finishes its NCAA Tournament run.
