Bulls Fire Hoiberg, Name Boylen Head Coach

Dec 1 2018 Houston TX USA Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg watches action on the court against the Houston Rockets during the firs

When the news broke early Monday morning that the Chicago Bulls had relieved head coach Fred Hoiberg of his duties, the Mayor of Ames wasn't the only person surprised.

The injuries and the Bulls' young roster combined to doom the Bulls to a 5-19 start this season, the third-worst record in the National Basketball Association.

The Bulls are now on a six-game losing streak and have only won one of their last 10 games. The Bulls were not expected to contend this season, so the dubious record is not surprising, but Hoiberg overall has been a disappointment since being hired away from Iowa State in 2015 to take over for Tom Thibodeau. However, this will be his first time serving as a head coaching capacity at the National Basketball Association level. He had a record of 115-155 in his tenure in Chicago.

Central Intelligence Agency chief Haspel to brief US Senate leaders on Khashoggi's death
Graham said there is " zero chance " the crown prince wasn't involved in Khashoggi's death. Haspel's briefing may have been created to placate some of those senators.

Boylen joined the Bulls on June 17, 2015. Hoiberg had been115-56 at Iowa State, including four straight NCAA tournament appearances and back-to-back Big 12 tournament titles.

The circumstances were different, but the results were just as disappointing. He did spend four years as the head coach at the University of Utah.

That was a fact Paxson never shied away from pointing out, whether it was in reflecting on Hoiberg's work at the end of his first two seasons in Chicago or outlining his firing Monday in a media session at the Advocate Center.

Forward Lauri Markkanen, the centerpiece of the Bulls' rebuilding plan, missed the first 23 games after spraining his left elbow at practice in late September. Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic were among the departures as the Bulls tried to find the right formula.

"We believe Jim will be able to effect change", Paxson said.

Hoiberg's recipe for success was clear to everyone who followed his team, everyone except those running the Bulls organization. We felt that there were a lot of things that needed to be addressed.
