Found May 31, 2013 on Fox Sports Wisconsin:
MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks finally have found their man. Larry Drew has accepted Milwaukee's offer and will become the team's head coach. Drew will sign a three-year contract with a team option for a fourth year. The 55-year-old was 128-102 over the past three seasons as head coach of the Hawks, leading Atlanta to three postseason appearances and a trip to the conference semifinals in 2010-11. A first round pick of the Detroit Pistons in 1980, Drew averaged 11.4 points per game over his 10-year career. Drew previously served as as assistant coach with the Los Angeles Lakers (1992-99), Pistons (1999-2000), Washington Wizards (2000-03), New Jersey Nets (2003-04) and Hawks (2004-10). The Bucks took their time in their search to replace Jim Boylan, who wasn't offered a contract for next season. Milwaukee interviewed six candidates for the job before settling on three finalists. When Steve Clifford was hired in Charlotte, Drew and Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson were the only candidates to receive second interviews. Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter.
