The Atlanta Hawks have named Mike Budenholzer as their next head coach, the team has announced. Budenholzer has spent the past 19 seasons as a coach with the San Antonio Spurs.
“We are thrilled to have Mike as the next coach of the Atlanta Hawks. He has an incredible basketball acumen and has a keen awareness of the league and what it takes to be successful," Ferry said. "His experience and four championships over the last 17 years provide a tremendous foundation for his leadership of our team.”
The Hawks have been in the market for a new head coach since they recently parted ways with Larry Drew. This season, Atlanta finished with an overall record of 44-38, which was good enough for sixth place in the Eastern Conference.
