NEW YORK — Mike Woodson is coming back to New York as an assistant on Tom Thibodeau’s staff.

He is the only Knicks coach to win a playoff series in the last two decades and the last one to even reach the postseason.

Woodson was one of the assistant coaches announced Friday by the Knicks, who hired Thibodeau as their coach in July.

The Knicks had already said that longtime Kentucky assistant Kenny Payne had left John Calipari’s staff to join Thibodeau.

They have now added Johnnie Bryant as associate head coach, and Woodson and Andy Greer as assistant coaches.

Woodson took the Knicks to the second round in 2013.
