Bulls fire Hoiberg, promote Boylen

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. It added up to a 115-155 mark with one playoff appearance in three-plus seasons.

Paxson also said the Bulls are committed to Boylen as their long-term head coach and that general manager Gar Forman is "absolutely safe". He spent four years as the head coach at the University of Utah.

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.

Hoiberg was named Bulls head coach on June 2, 2015. Denzel Valentine (ankle), Kris Dunn (knee) and Bobby Portis (knee) have missed significant time, and forward Lauri Markkanen didn't make his season debut until this past weekend because of an elbow injury.

After this brain trust fired Thibodeau and brought in Hoiberg, Fred would have been well served to give them a compass as a thank you gift.

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

The circumstances were different, but the results were disappointing. He played four seasons under coach Skip Chappelle at UMaine, where he was an All-North Atlantic Conference pick. With Rose's departure the Bulls became "Jimmy Butler's team" - the same Jimmy Butler that left for Minnesota and then demanded his way out of there too, arriving in Philadelphia earlier this year. The Bulls then signed veterans Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo - odd fits for Hoiberg's offense - and got knocked out by Boston in the first round of the playoffs.

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

"You can have a team that plays hard every night no matter who you put out there". 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.
