Bulls fire Fred Hoiberg with matchup against Thunder looming this week

Bulls fire Fred Hoiberg with matchup against Thunder looming this week Bulls fire Fred Hoiberg with matchup against Thunder looming this week

"I hope what we can do is own Bulls across our chest better", Boylen said on Monday morning. Boylen has been named the Bulls head coach. "I understand the pressure and the expectations to get this turned around quickly".

The leader at Iowa State for five seasons, Hoiberg's preferred style of play fit perfectly with where the National Basketball Association was headed: plenty of 3-point looks from everyone on the court with an emphasis on pushing the ball in transition in order to generate open shots.

He replaced Tom Thibodeau, who was sacked after five seasons, and the hope was that the free-wheeling style he used with the Cyclones would work in the National Basketball Association and that he would fare better than another former Iowa State coach, Tim Floyd, who went 49-190 record in three-plus seasons with the Bulls.

Following the exodus of former Coach of the Year Tom Thibodeau, the front office pairing of John Paxson and Gar Forman made a decision to go with a more modern approach to their next hiring.

The Bulls are now on a six-game losing streak and have only won one of their last 10 games.

The Bulls have lost their last six games and have the second worst record in the Eastern Conference.

The Bulls have been riddled by injuries all year. The Bulls used that pick for 7-foot power forward Lauri Markkanen.

"When you look in the locker room after a game and you don't see guys maybe hurting as much as they did before about losing, those are all things that when you sit in my position, in (Gar Forman's) position, you have to pay attention to", Paxson said. "We gave Fred an opportunity".

The Bulls signed Hoiberg in 2015 to a five-year, $25 million contract. Hoiberg went 115-56 at Iowa State, including four straight NCAA Tournament appearances and back-to-back Big 12 tournament titles.

Oh and there was Hoiberg's dalliance with future Hall of Famer Dwyane Wade, who wanted to "go home" to Chicago and who left Miami to play in the Bulls red jersey for a year - before going back to Miami by way of a short trip to Cleveland.

The circumstances were different, but the results were just as disappointing.
