Chicago Bulls fire Coach Jim Boylen

The Chicago Bulls have fired Head Coach Jim Boylen after two seasons, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnaroski who first broke the story.

“After doing a comprehensive evaluation and giving the process the time it deserved, I ultimately decided that a fresh approach and evolution in leadership was necessary,” Arturas Karnisovas, the Bulls new executive vice president of basketball operations said in a statement Friday. 

Boylen went 39-84 over the course of two seasons as the Bulls Head Coach.

“This was a very difficult decision, but it is time for our franchise to take that next step as we move in a new direction and era of Chicago Bulls basketball. Jim is a great human being that cares deeply about this organization and the game of basketball. I want to thank him for his professionalism and commitment to the franchise.” Karnisovas added.
