Bucks Hire New Head Coach

Mike Budenholzer will reportedly become the new head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, and the 16th in franchise history.

Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the news of Budenholzer accepting the Bucks job.

Budenholzer was looking for a new job after parting ways with the rebuilding Atlanta Hawks.

Budenholzer, who parted ways with Atlanta last month, met with Bucks ownership on Tuesday in NY.

It was reported in early May that Budenholzer was on the list of coaching candidates for the Bucks, along with former Grizzlies coach David Fizdale, former Cavaliers coach David Blatt, Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon and others. Budenholzer was voted as the NBA Coach of the Year that season.

Despite the struggles of the past year during the start of a rebuild, Budenholzer finished his time with the Hawks with a 213-197 record in the regular season with four playoff appearances in five years.

Considered one of the NBA's best tacticians.

The Milwaukee Bucks have found their man. Atlanta dropped to 24-58 this season, with the organization's mandate to shed salary and gather draft picks and future assets.

The hiring of a head coach was undoubtedly the biggest decision of the summer for the Bucks, but now the hard work must begin for Budenholzer and co.
