  • Just a few hours after he is introduced today as Rutgers’ new football coach at a 1:30 press conference broadcast on SNY, Kyle Flood will learn whether he gets to coach Darius Hamilton.

    The 6-foot-4 Hamilton, the son of former Giants great Keith Hamilton, is ranked the No. 2 strongside defensive end in the Class of 2012 by Rivals.

    He will announce for either Rutgers or Miami. National Signing Day is Wednesday.

    Asked if Hamilton had already decided in his own mind, Don Bosco coach Greg Toal told SNY.tv, “I got no idea, to be honest with you.”

    Amile Jefferson will hold off on announcing his college choice until after his season ends, which could be early next week.

    “He’s trying to finish up these last few high school games and then he’s going to make a decision,” Malcolm Musgrove, Jefferson’s father, told SNY.tv Monday evening.

    “He has three more games and then the playoffs. His season could be over next Tuesday.”

    SNY.tv reported that a source close to Jefferson’s recruitment said the 6-foot-7 Philly Friends Central forward would likely choose between Duke or N.C. State, and that he was leaning “60/40” to Duke.

    GREENBURGH, N.Y. — As the struggling Knicks await the returns of Carmelo Anthony and Baron Davis from injury, they remain alive in the Kenyon Martin Sweepstakes.

    Andy Miller, Martin’s agent, reiterated by text Monday that Martin will make his decision “by week’s end.”

    The former Net and Denver Nugget is considering the Knicks, Miami Heat, Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio Spurs and Atlanta Hawks. 

    GREENBURGH, N.Y. –– When a reporter on Monday asked Mike D’Antoni if he was worried about his job status, the coach tried his best to laugh it off.

    “I don’t know, are you worried about yours?” D’Antoni asked.

    “Always,” the reporter said.

    “Well, then welcome to the club, it’s tough out there,” said D’Antoni, who is in the last year of a four-year, $24 million deal.
