Chicago Bulls fire head coach Fred Hoiberg

The Chicago Bulls are firing head coach Fred Hoiberg.

“Decisions like this one are never easy to make, however I felt this was the right choice for our organization at this time,” said Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson.” After a thorough evaluation, I elected to make this move with the overall development of our team in mind. As a team, I believe it is imperative that we make unfaltering strides in the right direction and build the right habits to help put our players in the best position to evolve not only now, but into the future. I want to thank Fred for his dedication and efforts, as well as for his enduring commitment to our team.”

Hoiberg was named head coach on June 2, 2015. Associate head coach Jim Boylen was promoted to the head coach’s spot effective immediately.
