Coach Scott Skiles GONE from Bucks
A league source confirmed late Monday night that Scott Skiles is out as coach of the Milwaukee Bucks after four-plus seasons.
The source said it was mutually agreed between the two parties that Skiles would no longer coach the Bucks, effective immediately.
Jim Boylan will take over as interim coach of the team beginning with Tuesday's home game against Phoenix, the source indicated.
Skiles was in the final year of his contract with the team. He originally signed a four-year deal in April 2008 and had his contract extended one year following the 2009-'10 season.
The final game in Skiles' term with the Bucks came on Saturday night as Milwaukee lost at Indiana, 95-80. The Bucks dropped four straight games last week to fall to .500 after they had improved to a 16-12 record with a 104-85 home victory over Miami on Dec. 29.
