Hawks fire longtime VP of public relations Triche

By The Associated Press
ATLANTA -- Longtime Atlanta Hawks vice president of public relations Arthur Triche has been fired.

Triche had been with the Hawks since 1989 as the team's top contact for media. Always passionate about his favorite teams - the Hawks and the NFL's Saints - Triche was a fixture in the Atlanta sports scene.

The Hawks on Wednesday called Triche's exit "a personnel decision" but did not release a statement on the move. Hawks general manager Danny Ferry had no comment.

Triche previously worked as a media relations assistant with the Detroit Lions and in the sports information departments at Tulane and LSU.

Triche could not be reached for comment. He posted on his Twitter account "It's been real folks" on Wednesday.
