Fred Hoiberg fired by Bulls after disastrous three years


The Chicago Bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg on Monday following the team's dismal start to the season which has left them near the foot of the Eastern Conference standings.

Jim Boylen of the Chicago Bulls directs his team during the second half of an NBA basketball game on April 1. Just ask Tyronn Lue or Hoiberg. We think he has the intangibles to be a really good head coach.

In light of all of the awful player personnel decisions, bad draft picks, and mediocre results during their tenure, remarkably they were allowed to decide who the next coach will be to lead this team at a critical juncture. He arrived when injury-plagued but still young NBA MVP Derrick Rose still teased Bulls fans with an occasional return to form - before Rose was shipped out to the Knicks.

Jim Boylen is number five (Scott Skiles, Vinny Del Negro, Tom Thibodeau, Fred Hoiberg, and Boylen).

Corsi told CNN that Mueller had asked about his interactions with Stone around the time of the tape's release. He was with the transition team, he was part of the campaign, and yet there's no mention of collusion.

Hoiberg was named Chicago's head coach in June 2015 after spending five seasons as head coach at Iowa State. He has to - his health depends on it. This year's 5-19 start sealed his fate.

Returning to the National Basketball Association, where he was involved in two championships with Houston, Boylen joined in coach Frank Vogel's staff. He also served as head coach of the University of Utah from 2007-11.

In the three seasons he has been at the helm, the Bulls have missed the playoffs twice and lost in the first round of the playoffs.

He replaced Tom Thibodeau, who was sacked after five seasons.

The 34-year old has been in custody since his arrest back in July and did receive credit for 300 days already served. He was with the Seahawks during their Super Bowl win in February 2014 and was signed to Patriots later that year.

The Bulls have been in the midst of a major rebuild since previous year, after jettisoning veterans like Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo, and trading Jimmy Butler to the Minnesota Timberwolves for for guard Zach LaVine, point guard Kris Dunn and the rights to the No. 7 pick in the 2017 draft.

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

Following the exodus of former Coach of the Year Tom Thibodeau, the front office pairing of John Paxson and Gar Forman chose to go with a more modern approach to their next hiring.

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

The 2018 Ballon d'Or will be awarded on Monday, and for the first time in a decade, it might go to a new player. He was named in the Champions League "Team of the Season" and won the UEFA "Midfielder of the Season".

NOTE: Boylen said Dean Cooper - an assistant with the G League's Windy City Bulls - will join his staff.
