Atlanta Hawks Have Fired Head Coach Nate McMillan

On Tuesday, the Atlanta Hawks announced that coach Nate McMillan has been fired. McMillan initially joined the team as an assistant coach before being promoted to head coach midway through the 2020-21 season.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, former coach of the Utah Jazz, Quin Snyder is reportedly a top candidate to replace McMillan.

During his tenure with the Hawks, McMillan amassed a record of 99-80 over two-plus seasons. He is a highly experienced head coach, having coached over 1400 games with Atlanta, Seattle, Portland, and Indiana.

It seems entirely possible that Nate McMillan has coached his last NBA game, but I certainly hope that is not the case. While I do not watch a ton of Atlanta Hawks basketball, I get the feeling they have issues that go far beyond anything within McMillan’s control.
