Bulls fire Hoidberg; Jim Boylen takes over as coach

Fred Hoiberg

I was pretty surprised when I learned of the news myself, and I outlined the reasons why the move makes little sense at this point.

Boylen has been with the Bulls since Jun. 17, 2015.

Forward Lauri Markkanen, the centerpiece of the Bulls' rebuilding plan, missed the first 23 games after spraining his left elbow at practice in late September.

Hoiberg was in his fourth season as coach of the Bulls, logging a 115-155 record during his tenure. He spent four years as the head coach at the University of Utah. He has spent more than 20 years in the National Basketball Association, where he also has been an assistant in Houston, Golden State, Milwaukee, Indiana and San Antonio.

Hoiberg, 46, took over as Bulls head coach in the 2015-2016 season.

I'm starting to wonder whether "Gar" is short for Garfield, as this cat has had more than nine lives. We gave Fred opportunities.

Chicago went into full rebuild mode and acquired a lot of young pieces while drafting players that they hoped would turn their fortunes around over the next few seasons. Hoiberg had been115-56 at Iowa State, including four straight NCAA tournament appearances and back-to-back Big 12 tournament titles. Paxson and Forman have hired Bill Cartwright, Scott Skiles, Vinny Del Negro, Tom Thibodeau and Hoiberg.

The circumstances were different, but the results were disappointing.

Hoiberg's first season began with championship aspirations but quickly devolved because of a divided locker room and a team on its last legs.

The Bulls have been in the midst of a major rebuild since past year, after jettisoning veterans like Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo, and trading Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves for for guard Zach LaVine, point guard Kris Dunn and the rights to the No. 7 pick in the 2017 draft. They got Markkanen, Dunn and Zach LaVine and appeared to be on the right track last season, with their competitiveness and player development.

"This decision was not based on our record, plain and simple", Paxson said.

Boylen said he will add Dean Cooper from the Bulls G league affiliate, Windy City, to the coaching staff. Boylen said he plans to meet with players and coaches individually in IN this evening to discuss their respective roles on the team.
