Since the 2016-17 season, they have advanced to the playoffs for six consecutive seasons. They have reached the conference semifinals on three occasions. He has won Manager of the Month four times and has been in the top three in the Manager of the Year voting twice.
ESPN said, “The Hawks wanted a performance this season, and Snyder wanted a chance to develop his philosophy and program in the long run.

He will also voice his voice on personnel-related issues such as player recruitment.
The existing coaching staff, including Joe Frunti, who served as acting manager for the past two games, will be with the new manager until this season.
