David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Stan Van Gundy told SportsTalk1080's David Baumann on Tuesday that he would not be returning to the NBA as a head coach next season citing family reasons.

Van Gundy was thought to be at the top of the Atlanta Hawks' wish list this offseason. Van Gundy also told Baumann that despite being contacted by a lot of teams that he has not interviewed for any positions. That disputes an earlier report that he had been interviewed by the Hawks.

Hawks general manager Danny Ferry has not established a timeline for naming a new coach. Other names that have surfaced in the search include San Antonio Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer, former Seattle and Portland head coach Nate McMillan and Euroleague legend Ettore Messina.
