Mike Budenholzer has officially resigned as president of basketball operations for the Atlanta Hawks, while Wes Wilcox has stepped down from his role as general manager.

Budenholzer will remain Atlanta’s head coach, while Wilcox will serve as a special advisor to ownership.

“As we have said from the beginning, we are committed to building the Atlanta Hawks into a championship-caliber team, and after the end of our season, it was clear to all of us that our basketball operations leadership needed this reorganization,” Hawks owner Tony Ressler said in a press release.

Budenholzer has led the Hawks to a 189-139 record during his four seasons in Atlanta, earning Coach of the Year honors during the 2014-15 campaign.

After joining the organization in 2012, Wilcox was promoted to general manager in June 2015, helping the Hawks reach the postseason in back-to-back years.

The Hawks are entering a crucial offseason, with Paul Millsap expected to opt out of his current deal this summer.
