Hoiberg fired

Kind of shocking. I figured that they were all-in on him since he was a GarPax underling and Jerry is loyal to a fault.

They're naming Jim Boylen, currently the assistant head coach, to be the full time head coach, and his contract is for another year.

Had to happen... Hoiberg was Marc Trestman... no idea how to command a room or hold players accountable.

Boylen, the cynic in me thinks he got promoted because he's cheap. Still, he's got some more red-ass to him which I like in an NBA coach.

I don't think much of Hoiberg as a coach, but firing him smacks of someone trying to save their own skin, particularly because the team he was supposed to have this year has been on the floor for a grand total of 10 minutes.

Wake me when they decide to hold Forman and/or Paxson accountable for anything.
