Chicago Bulls v Detroit Pistons, Game 1

Scott Skiles has today been fired as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, sources say (USA Today).

Skiles, a former player, has been head coach of the Bucks since the 2008 season, and has taken his team to the playoffs once, while holding a win loss record of 443-433. The Bucks started the season strongly but have since failed to deliver wins and are now only just hanging on to a .500/16-16 record. Details are not obtainable at this point, however a tweet from up and coming guard Brandon Jennings quelled the rumors and gave way to the facts. Their coach is indeed gone.

Skiles was in his final year as Bucks coach and had been told he would need to produce wins should he wish to have his contract renewed at the culmination of the season.
