Atlanta Hawks Fire Assistant Coaches Kenny Gattison, Tyrone Hill, According To Report

The Atlanta Hawks are shaking up their coach staff in a big way, as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that the club has let go of assistants Kenny Gattison and Tyrone Hill:

As mentioned by Cunningham, the Hawks are also in the process of hiring Kenny Atkinson, who has most recently served as the Knicks' development coach. Hill was a holdover from Mike Woodson's staff, while Gattison has been an assistant for two years under head coach Larry Drew.

No official announcement has been made by the team regarding any of the moves.
