Milwaukee Bucks Looking for a New Head Coach

by May 01, 2013

Happy trails, Jim Boylan. The Milwaukee Bucks announced today that they won’t be retaining their interim coach and are now in the process of finding a new bench boss: “The Milwaukee Bucks will begin a search immediately for a new head coach after informing Jim Boylan that he will not be offered a new contract, General Manager John Hammond announced. The decision was made after Hammond met with Boylan Wednesday morning at the Bucks Training Center in St. Francis, Wis. ‘At this time we feel it’s in the best interest of the organization to seek a new coach to lead our team,’ said Hammond. ‘We appreciate Jim’s efforts not only in his time as head coach, but in his entire tenure as a coach in Milwaukee. On behalf of the Bucks organization, I thank Jim for his five years here and his many contributions on and off the court. We wish Jim and his wife, Jane, the best.’ Boylan compiled a 22-28 record (.440) after replacing Scott Skiles as head coach on Jan. 7. The Bucks were swept by Miami in the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs, 4-0.”
