ATLANTA (AP) -- Quin Snyder, a former assistant coach with the Lakers and 76ers and former coach at Missouri, has been hired to join new Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer's staff as an assistant.

Snyder returns to the NBA with the Hawks after spending last season as an assistant with CSKA Moscow.

From 2007-10, Snyder had a 94-56 record as coach of the Austin Toros of the NBA Development League and was the 2008-09 D-League coach of the year.

Snyder was 128-96 with four NCAA tournament appearances in seven seasons at Missouri. He also is a former assistant at Duke, where he played from 1985-89.

Budenholzer was named the Hawks' coach on May 29. He is continuing as an assistant with the San Antonio Spurs through the NBA Finals.
