Despite recent success, Walsh out as Knicks president | NBA.com

Donnie Walsh will not return as president of the New York Knicks, who must find someone else to continue the building job he started.The Knicks announced in a statement Friday that Walsh and Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan mutually agreed that Walsh will not return when his contract expires at the end of June, a somewhat surprising departure and major loss for a team coming off its best season in a decade.The 70-year-old Walsh said he decided Thursday that he wasnt up to Dolans request that he stay on for at least two years.”I wasnt sure that I wanted to go and devote myself multiyear. On the other hand, I understand why he would want that,” Walsh said on a conference call.
