Sucks, we get a retread because management can't agree on anyone else.  Your thoughts?

"The Atlanta Hawks have promoted assistant Larry Drew to become their next head coach, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Drew agreed to a three-year contract with the Hawks, sources said."

 

Drew has been a Hawks assistant for six seasons and has 16 years of coaching experience but has never been a head coach. Drew, who also played 10 seasons in the NBA, was popular with the Hawks players, which helped him land the job after Mike Woodson was fired following a second-round loss to the Orlando Magic.

Drew, who was working out final contract details with the team, was hired over Dallas Mavericks assistant Dwane Casey and NBA television analyst and former player Mark Jackson. Hawks ownership made the decision following a conference call with team officials.

The Hawks made it to the playoffs three straight seasons, but were dominated in the second round the last two years
