Chicago Bulls: Why the wrong man was sacked

Adjust Comment Print

The Chicago Bulls have cut ties with head coach Fred Hoiberg following the team's 5-19 start to the season.

The Bulls are now 5-19 and sit in 14th place in the Eastern Conference.

In his 246 games in charge, the Bulls won 110 and lost 136.

Multiple outlets reported that Boylen is not being given an interim tag, and presumably will coach the Bulls at least through the 2018-19 season.

The Associate Head Coach Jim Boylen has been promoted to head coach.

Boylen returned to the National Basketball Association in 2011-2012 at in and did a two-year stint (2013-2015) under Gregg Popovich at San Antonio, where he won another National Basketball Association title before moving on to the Bulls.

He also said that he was open to ratifying the previously unapproved Qualcomm-NXP deal should it be presented to him once again. In return, China is to purchase "very substantial" amount of agricultural, energy, industrial and other product from the US.

The circumstances were different, but the results were disappointing. Most recently on the collegiate level, he was head coach at the University of Utah, where he led the Utes to the 2009 NCAA Tournament.

Boylen, now 63 years of age, has served as an assistant for several teams around the National Basketball Association, including the Houston Rockets, Golden State Warriors, Milwaukee Bucks, Indiana Pacers and San Antonio Spurs. Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic were among the departures as the Bulls tried to find the right formula.

Hoiberg played four seasons in Chicago and has a long history with Forman. The same can be said about Paxson, but he doesn't have a cat-sounding name, so the pun didn't work so well.

Hoiberg's first season began with championship aspirations but quickly devolved because of a divided locker room and a team on its last legs. We felt that there were a lot of things that needed to be addressed.

This season, Hoiberg has had Portis for only four games, Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen for one each and Denzel Valentine for zero. Individual development is not the same as the development of a team and a style of play and how you want to go about it. Boylen's first game in charge is Tuesday at in, where he landed as an assistant coach in 2011 after his four-year Ute tenure ended.
