The Hawks announced today that they have added Charles Lee and Ben Sullivan to Mike Budenholzer’s coaching staff.
According to the team’s press release, Lee was an assistant coach the last two seasons at Bucknell, where he coached Mike Muscala during Muscala’s senior season. Lee was also the 2006 Patriot League Player of the Year and played professional ball abroad before becoming a coach. Sullivan was an assistant and video coordinator with the Spurs, meaning he likely has a good connection with head coach Budenholzer.
Lee and Sullivan fill the void left by Quin Synder, who is now the head coach of the Utah Jazz, and Jim Thomas, who has been moved to a role within the front office as a scout.
