New York Knicks Head Coach Derek Fisher filed a divorce against his wife, Candace Fisher according to the New York Post. He filed his paperwork Wednesday in Los Angeles.
Derek and Candace were married on Feb. 19 2005. They have two children together name Tatum and Drew, who both are twins. Fisher describes the situation in a statement concerning privacy and respect from the media.
This is a difficult time for me personally. For the sake of our children, I ask that everyone respects our privacy during this process.
It’s been a very tough year for Fisher in his first year as a head coach. Most of his success came off the Los Angeles Lakers and helped them achieve five championships in his NBA Career. He hopes to achieve the same success for the Knicks despite his personal problems.
