07:04 AM ET 05.16 | Nate McMillan is a busy man these days. [McMillan] interviewed for the Atlanta Hawks' coaching job on Wednesday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. Atlanta general manager Danny Ferry is going through the unorthodox process of conducting a coaching search while his current coach, Larry Drew, remains under contract until June 30. Drew is highly unlikely to be retained as coach, but Ferry has reserved the remote option of revisiting contract extension talks with Drew should the Hawks fail to attract a coach Ferry believes is a better fit for the franchise. McMillan also is a candidate for the coaching openings with the Milwaukee Bucks and Detroit Pistons. He's already interviewed with those teams.

Nate would be good for this team. Drew did pretty well considering that he has the Hawks in the playoffs every year.

Look at that roster......I think drew did pretty well, considering Not saying that hes the goat coach,but that is a limited roster

I thought so too... and got ripped for that thought.

He's more than "just a guy".

Coaching is not the biggest issue in Atlanta. They have a guy with super-star talent at power forward that wants to be a small forward. Hoford is under-sized but very good in the post and they have a good point guard. It is a rebuilding project especially if Smith leaves

I feel bad for Drew. Think about it, if we all had a job and KNEW our boss was looking to replace us, even though our boss only gave us a limited amount of tools to get the job done, how would we feel? Betrayed? Drew did a good job with what he had. It's a pretty crappy thing to do to your coach.
