Hawks hire coach
ATLANTA (AP)-Kevin Loughery
decided to become the new coach of the
National Basketball Association's
Atlanta Hawks yesterday after weeks
of mulling over what a move to the
South would mean to his family.
"Basketball is my livelihood-being a
pro basketball coach-and the coaching
opportunity here is a good one,"
Loughery said.
COUGHERY HAD been offered the
job in April but took weeks to announce
his decision because he wanted to be
sure his wife and two teen-age sons
would be happy moving from New York
to Atlanta.
He said he and his wife, Sheila,
"visited Atlanta and met the basketball
people there. 'We were delighted with
the basketball situation in Atlanta. We
liked the town extremely well, were
delighted with the people. It's a very
snnal nnnnrtnnity fnr us."

The former New Jersey Nets coach
made his comments in anhEnterprise
Radio interview Tuesday shortly after
telling Hawks President Mike Gearon
he would become coach of the team.
