Hawks head coach Larry Drew has finalized his 2010-11 coaching staff with the hiring of former pro Nick Van Exel to the position of Player Development Instructor, it was announced this afternoon. Van Exel, comes to Atlanta from Texas Southern University, where he served as an assistant coach.

Were very excited to add Nick to the staff, said Drew. I think he brings a wealth of knowledge to the position, and given his past experiences, hell be really vital to the development of our young guards, particularly Jeff Teague and Jordan Crawford. With the staff we currently have on board, I believe Nick will do a tremendous job for us moving forward.

Loved Nick when he was in the league. Never thought he was going to turn in to a coach, given his game and all those incredibly long 3s he took, but I'm glad to see him at it.

The playoff series he had for Dallas against Sacramento in 02-03 was absolutely ridiculous.

Someone make sure Ron Garretson doesn't ref any Hawks games this season...

"Listen guys, if the ref makes a call you don't like, you better grab a TV monitor and chuck it onto the court, or you're riding the bench for the rest of the week."
