Fred Hoiberg Ousted as Bulls Head Coach


Before the dust could settle on the Chicago Bulls' historic defeat against the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors, a message was written on a dry erase board inside the coach's office of the United Center's home locker room. Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic were among the departures as the Bulls tried to find the right formula.

But as the Bulls get ready to start December, they've decided to make a coaching change.

"What I hope we can do is own "Bulls" across our chest better", said Boylen. His 33 years of coaching experience includes 20 seasons in the National Basketball Association, highlighted by National Basketball Association championships with the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995 and the San Antonio Spurs in 2014. According to one source, Hoiberg believed he would have the chance to coach a fully healthy team before being evaluated, which the Sun-Times reported Sunday.

He also was the head coach at the University of Utah for four seasons. Markkanen played his first game of the season Saturday in a 16-point loss to the Houston Rockets. The writing was on the wall for the Bulls to move on, although they may have done it sooner than many would have thought. Bobby Portis (right knee) and Kris Dunn (left knee), who are expected to return within the two weeks, would've allowed Hoiberg to coach the team he had worked with this summer. He finishes his tenure in Chicago with a record of 115-155 (.426) and a single playoff appearance, when the Bulls were ousted in the first round by Boston in 2017.
