Bucks GM: Boylan out as head coach
by Chris Patterson

MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Bucks announced they will not bring Coach Jim Boylan back for another season. Bucks GM John Hammon says the decision was made Wednesday morning after he met with Boylan.

“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. 8.  The Bucks were swept by Miami in the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs, 4-0.
