(ST. FRANCIS, Wis.) — The Milwaukee Bucks announced on Wednesday they will not be bringing back interim head coach Jim Boylan next season, despite the team making the playoffs.
“At this time we feel it’s in the best interest of the organization to seek a new coach to lead our team,” said Bucks general manager John Hammond in a statement. “We appreciate Jim’s efforts not only in his time as head coach, but in his entire tenure as a coach in Milwaukee.”
The 58-year-old Boylan took over as coach for Scott Skiles after Skiles left the club in early January. Boylan went 22-28, leading the Bucks to the eighth seed in the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs, where they were swept in four games by the defending NBA champion Miami Heat.
