Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew will interview for the vacant head coaching job with the Milwaukee Bucks this weekend, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Still under contract with the Hawks, Drew is being allowed to interview with other teams while Atlanta interviews his potential replacement.
It’s a bizarre situation, and Drew appears to be seeing the writing on the wall.
Drew, 55, is 128-102 in his three seasons as head coach in Atlanta, leading the Hawks to three postseason appearances and a trip to the conference semifinals in 2010-11.
A first round pick of the Detroit Pistons in 1980, Drew averaged 11.4 points per game over his 10-year career.
Drew previously served as as assistant coach with the Los Angeles Lakers (1992-99), Pistons (1999-2000), Washington Wizards (2000-03), New Jersey Nets (2003-04) and Hawks (2004-10).
Former NBA head coach Nate McMillan, Lakers assistant Steve Clifford and Rockets assistants Kelvin Sampson and J.B. Bickerstaff have interviewed for the job. The Bucks did meet with Hall of Fame coach Jerry Sloan, but he told the team he’s not interested.
