The announcement comes after the Hawks ended a nine-year playoff drought and forced the Boston Celtics to a Game 7 in a first round playoff series that ended Sunday.
He said Wednesday he is resigning from the organization effective July 1.
The 55-year-old Knight spent six years with the organization. His best season came this year, as the Hawks had a 37-45 regular season record and broke a nine-year playoff drought.
Knight says in a statement he's ``leaving the organization in much better shape than it was in when I took over.''
