Hawks GM Ferry takes

The Covington News - - THE WIRE -

AT­LANTA (AP) — At­lanta Hawks gen­eral man­ager Danny Ferry took an in­def­i­nite leave of ab­sence Fri­day, mak­ing the move un­der fire for his racially charged com­ments about a player.

Hawks CEO Steve Koonin has re­sisted calls for Ferry to be dis­missed, but said the 47-year-old GM asked for the leave.

“My hope that this time away from the Hawks or­ga­ni­za­tion al­lows him the pri­vacy he needs to lis­ten to the com­mu­nity, to learn about his mis­takes, and to be­gin the long process of per­sonal heal­ing,” Koonin said in a state­ment.
