Atlanta Hawks Fire Coach Lloyd Pierce

The Atlanta Hawks are on the search for a new head coach. 

The Hawks announced Monday that they have relieved Lloyd Pierce of his duties as head coach. 

The Hawks entered the 2020-21 campaign with playoff aspirations but Atlanta has been one of the biggest disappointments so far. The Hawks are currently 14-20 and 11th in the Eastern Conference.

The Hawks are hopeful that assistant coach Nate McMillan will take over as interim head coach, according to ESPN. 

In two-plus seasons as the Hawks leading man, Pierce was 63-120 and failed to make the playoffs.
