Larry Drew said he was “blindsided” by the way he lost his job as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Commenting at length for the first time since he was fired by the Bucks’ new ownership June 30, Drew said his firing was “definitely mystifying.”

The veteran coach lasted just one season in Milwaukee and was replaced by former Brooklyn Nets coach Jason Kidd.

“It caught me in a position when I least expected it. But I know how these things work. I don’t have any hard feelings, any grudges against anybody.

“If I had been a new coach, I might have reacted differently (to the firing). But because I’ve been in this so long and I’ve had friends who have had these type things happen to them, I was OK.
