Mike Budenholzer Rumors
Voigt’s big break came in 1999 when the San Antonio Spurs offered him a job as a video coordinator. It’s not the sort of job a 23-year-old with so little basketball experience typically lands, but the Spurs have never been afraid to take a chance on someone from a non-traditional background. Plus, Weltman vouched for Voigt to Spurs general manager R.C. Buford and Pomona alums Gregg Popovich and Mike Budenholzer also received rave reviews from folks at their alma mater. “He was young and he was cheap,” Buford joked. “When he was with us, he had a really good relationship with our players. He was able to connect with people. He wasn’t afraid to take a different path and he was very ambitious.”
“We walk into our houses and thank Tim Duncan,” Atlanta Hawks head coach and longtime Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer says. “You think about all the coaches and all the GMs and even the assistant video guys who are now assistant coaches, all the people who have climbed the NBA ladder — we all owe our success, our place in the league to Timmy. “The magnitude of that, the number of people in this league who have enjoyed opportunity or found fortunate spots in the league, you can trace it back to this one guy — to the way Timmy played ball and the conducted himself. The ‘culture’ is Timmy.”
“We are excited to re-sign Kent and welcome him back to the Hawks. His passion for the game is contagious and through his tireless work ethic, he has developed into a dynamic two-way player. We look forward to his continued development with us,” Mike Budenholzer said.
Dwight Howard is coming home, and playing for Hawks Head Coach Mike Budenholzer had a lot to do with him agreeing to terms in Atlanta. “I really love the coach,” said Howard from Philips Arena where he was watching a Dream game with his family. “I told him three years ago I really like his style and the way he approaches the game. Just to be able to get coached by somebody like that who’s all about trying to allow you to grow as a player, I’m excited. I’ve seen what Al (Horford) has done in the past.”
A jury found Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer not guilty of DUI. Jurors wanted to see the dashcam video again that was taken of Budenhozler’s arrest in August 2013. Budenholzer took the stand and admitted he had one and a half glasses of wine but never felt impaired.
