Bulls fire Hoiberg, promote Boylen to head coach

"We were in a similar situation previous year at this time", Paxson said. LaVine played only 24 games last season, after tearing the ACL in his left knee.

While this firing may come as a surprise - Hoiberg never seriously appeared to be on the hot seat - there was some writing on the wall.

Hoiberg was named the head coach in Chicago on June 2, 2015, after spending five seasons as head coach at Iowa State where the former Cyclones player was nicknamed "The Mayor". During his time with the Bulls, he coached the team to a record of 115-155 (.426). Hoiberg went 115-56 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. Paxson and Forman have hired Bill Cartwright, Scott Skiles, Vinny Del Negro, Tom Thibodeau and Hoiberg. Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic were among the departures as the Bulls tried to find the right formula. On paper, Chicago looked like a team that could have a chance to at least compete for a playoff spot in a weaker Eastern Conference, but that simply has not been the case and Hoiberg is clearly taking the blame for that, as opposed to say, the weird ill-fitting roster.

Following his first run in Chicago, the Bulls made a decision to pair All-Star Jimmy Butler - who shot just 31.2 percent from distance the year prior - with Rajon Rondo and Dwyane Wade, who have combined to shoot just 31.1 from outside over the course of their careers. They got Markkanen, Dunn and Zach LaVine and appeared to be on the right track last season, with their competitiveness and player development.

"We believe Jim will be able to effect change", Paxson said. "Jim is going to be our coach". It's a very hard job.

The Bulls reportedly do not intend to hire an assistant to replace Boylen for now.
