AP source: Hawks set to hire Larry Drew as coach

ATLANTA (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says that the Atlanta Hawks are poised to hire Larry Drew as their next head coach.

The person spoke to The Associated press on condition of anonymity because the team is still working out details of the hiring on Friday.

Drew was an assistant under former coach Mike Woodson. Woodson was fired by the Hawks after they were swept in the second round of the playoffs by the Orlando Magic.

The choice of Drew was first reported by Yahoo.com.
