The remainder of the staff includes Taylor Jenkins, Charles Lee, Ben Sullivan, Chris Jent and Patrick St. Andrews.
Some of the assistants could remain on the staff of the new head coach. Typically, a new hire likes to surround himself with assistants of his choosing.
Schlenk said there is no hard date to replace Budenholzer but that the search would begin immediately. He said he assumed a new coach would be in place by the NBA Draft in June.
“We are going to find the right head coach for the Atlanta Hawks,” Schlenk said. “That coach is going to have the same job description or same end game as I do and that’s to try to bring a championship to the Atlanta Hawks.”
Budenholzer has interviewed with the Suns and Knicks. He is considered a leading candidate in New York. Now that he no longer employed by the Hawks, he is free to interview with other teams with openings, current and future. Budenholzer could bring some of his assistants with him should he get another job.
