Fred Hoiberg fired as Chicago Bulls coach

Fred Hoiberg Ousted as Bulls Head Coach	 	 	 			Fred Hoiberg

Jim Boylen will take over as head coach for the Bulls.

After an ugly 5-19 start to the season, the Bulls chose to fire Hoiberg, who was in the fourth season of a five-year contract. Although LaVine returned healthy this season, injuries piled up even worse, with Markkanen missing the first six weeks with an elbow sprain, Kris Dunn missing all but one game so far with a left knee sprain, and Denzel Valentine out for the rest of the season as he recovers from surgery for an ankle injury. "After a thorough evaluation, I elected to make this move with the overall development of our team in mind", Bulls executive vice president John Paxson announced in a statement Monday morning. He finishes his tenure in Chicago, where he played for four seasons and had a long history with general manager Gar Forman, 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.

‘Stranger Things 3: The Game’ Announced, First Trailer Revealed
The awkwardly-titled Stranger Things 3: The Game is a 16-bit adaption that follows the events of Season 3. Like the series itself! However, we can expect both to arrive around the same time, sometime in 2019.

Hoiberg, 46, took over as Bulls head coach in the 2015-2016 season.

The Bulls fired Hoiberg after a 5-19 start to the season, including nine losses in their past 10 games. Additionally, he has coached collegiately at Michigan State, where he served on the staffs for both Jud Heathcote and Tom Izzo. Hoiberg had an interesting start to his coaching career with Chicago when they hired him in 2015, as he battled it out with the veterans on the team at the time. He has been an assistant with the Rockets, Warriors, Bucks, Pacers and Spurs, but his most prominent role was as head coach of the Utah Utes men's basketball team from 2007 to 2011. He's well-respected in the locker room and around the league.
