McMillan returned to New Orleans for two seasons before joining his father’s staff with the Atlanta Hawks in July 2021. 

Prior to his coaching career, McMillan served as the Director of Basketball Operations at Drake University after graduating from Arizona State University in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in communications.
