    Default Hawks offer job to Woodson

    Woodson strongly considering offer

    By Marc Stein
    ESPN.com

    The Atlanta Hawks have offered their vacant coaching position to Detroit Pistons assistant Mike Woodson, ESPN.com has learned.

    Woodson is among the hottest coaching candidates in the NBA's assistant ranks and, according to sources, is strongly considering the offer, with a decision not expected until after the holiday weekend.

    Hawks general manager Billy Knight acknowledged earlier in the week that he might be forced to extend a three- or four-year offer to a coach, signaling that Woodson is Atlanta's top candidate.

    It's believed that only a long-term deal will lure Woodson away from Detroit, where he ranks as Larry Brown's lead assistant and as a possible down-the-road successor for Brown with the newly crowned NBA champions.

    If Woodson declines, the Hawks are expected to turn to Indiana Pacers assistant Mike Brown.
    Well, hopefully he'll take it. I like Billy Knight alot, and I want him to succeed, but I don't want to lose Mike. I really think Carlisle needs another year with him, or else he'll just revert back to being too conservative. Especially if he were to replace him with O'Neill.

    Congrats to Woodson.

    I have a prediction: Next Hawks coach will be Mike.
    Two=the number 2
    Too=means "also"
    To=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (two, too) do not apply.

    Their=shows ownership-'it is their house'
    They're=they are
    There=many definitions-also known as the one to use when the other 2 (their, they're) do not apply

    Sorry but it bugs me when these are used incorrectly when I read posts on PacersDigest.com.

    Whew... now let's just hope the Nuggets don't fire Bzdelik.

    Is there still a chance O'Neill will join the staff? Maybe replace Rothstein with him or just add him to the staff?

    Man i hope woodson takes it. I dont want to lose Mike Brown it seems like he has good chemistry with the players, not only that he is a great assistant coach. This might nix a trade for JTerry.

    I'm really happy for Mike Woodson. I hope he takes it and is successful.

    Let's fill the world with ex-IU players as coaches.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    It looks like he's going to take it...

    I wonder: Is there a limit to how many assistant coaches one can have?
