Jim Boylan to assume head coaching duties

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Following the Bucks' agreement to part ways with head coach Scott Skiles, Jim Boylan will reportedly assume head coaching duties.

Following the sudden departure of Scott Skiles from his head coaching position with the Milwaukee Bucks, the team needed to appoint a replacement for their upcoming game against the Phoenix Suns. It appears the Bucks have already appointed Skiles' successor, and not just for the immediate future:

This isn't the first stint as a replacement head coach in Boylan's career. In fact, it isn't his first time replacing Scott Skiles. After Skiles was fired by the Chicago Bulls during the 2007-2008 season, Boylan took over as interim head coach. The Bulls finished that season 24-32 under Boylan and missed the playoffs. When Chicago elected not to retain him, Boylan joined Skiles as an assistant in Milwaukee.
