CLEVELAND -The Cleveland Cavaliers and "acting head coach" Larry Drew have agreed to terms on a new deal, the team announced Monday afternoon.

Knowing what usually happens to interim head coaches, Drew was seeking additional guarantees from the Cavaliers in terms of money and the length of his contract in order to accept the role as head coach for the rest of the season.

The 38-year-old driver was able to overcome that deficit by finishing fifth in the first stage and third in the second stage. Hendrick Motorsports team-mates Jimmie Johnson and William Byron failed inspection twice and thrice, respectively.

Drew was promoted to interim head coach after Tyronn Lue was sacked on October 28. Prior to that, he was head coach of the Atlanta Hawks from 2010 through 2013, where he compiled a 128-102 (.557) overall record and led the Hawks to the playoffs his last 3 seasons in Atlanta. Drew will receive a "buyout payment" if he is not retained for the 2019-20 season, per Wojnarowski.

After reading all of that, it's not a surprise Larry Drew wanted some assurances from the Cavs. Drew said he was "disappointed" about the lack of contract negotiations on Wednesday and compared his job to that of a "substitute teacher". While it's unlikely he will be able to turn the team around this season, this opportunity is something he can't afford to take lightly.

The Cavaliers' preference likely will be to conduct a search and target a coach to direct the franchise's rebuild, but Drew has the trust and respect of the Cavaliers veterans and remains essential to get them through what promises to be a trying season.
