According to the USA Today, head coach Scott Skiles and the team have decided to go their separate ways. Bucks assistant coach Jim Boylan will take over the team on an interim basis.

The team was .500 this season, as they stand 16-16 on the year. However, the team has lost four straight games.

He was 162-182 since becoming the Bucks head coach prior to the 2008-09 season. His team reached the playoffs just once in his four years as the team’s head coach.

Skiles is the second coach to be fired this season, as the Lakers fired head coach Mike Brown in November. He has a career 443-433 record in 13 seasons as the Phoenix Suns, Chicago Bulls, and Bucks head coach.
