According to a report by Michael Cunningham, the Atlanta Hawks are looking for at least one more assistant coach for Larry Drew's staff. Cunningham is reporting that Kenny Gattison and Tyrone Hill will not return this season.

The hire of Kenny Atkinson was reported earlier in the week but nothing regarding the coaching staff has been announced by the team as of yet. Gattison had served as assistant coach for both of Drew's seasons on the bench. Tyrone Hill was a holdover from the Mike Woodson era and spent two seasons with the Hawks as a volunteer assistant. No word as of yet on whether this is a matter of Gattison and Hill leaving for another job or if it is a shakeup to the existing staff.
