Bucks name Larry Drew head coach

The Milwaukee Bucks have reached an agreement for Larry Drew to become the team's next head coach. In a statement yesterday, general manager John Hammond told reporters that Drew's experience as both a coach and player make him the right fit to lead the Bucks.

“We are pleased to reach an agreement with Larry Drew to become head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks,” said Hammond. “After a thorough search and interview process, it was clear to us that Larry’s track record in Atlanta, along with his experience as an assistant coach and player, make him the right choice to lead our club. We look forward to what he will bring to this franchise and we welcome him and his family to Milwaukee.”
Prior to joining the Bucks, Drew was most recently the head coach of the Atlanta Hawks. In that position, he guided Atlanta to three consecutive postseason appearances. During his time with the Hawks, Drew maintained a record of 128-102.

Before taking over as head coach, Drew was the lead assistant coach with the Hawks for six seasons. He’s also been an assistant with the Nets, Wizards and Pistons, and he spent 11 seasons in the NBA as a player.
