DETROIT (AP) -- Former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Woodson will interview for the Detroit Pistons' job for a second time.

A person with knowledge of the situation, speaking on condition of anonymity because the team isn't commenting on the coaching search, says Woodson is set to interview again. Detroit fired coach John Kuester on June 5.

Woodson was an assistant for Larry Brown when the Pistons won the 2004 NBA title -- on a staff that also included Kuester.

Boston Celtics assistant Lawrence Frank, Milwaukee Bucks assistant Kelvin Sampson, Minnesota Timberwolves assistant Bill Laimbeer and Orlando Magic assistant Patrick Ewing are other possible coaching candidates.
