Bulls fire head coach Fred Hoiberg

The Chicago Bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg on Monday and promoted Jim Boylen to lead the team.

Executive vice president John Paxson said in a statement: "Decisions like this one are never easy to make".

The injuries and the Bulls' young roster combined to doom the Bulls to a 5-19 start this season, the third-worst record in the National Basketball Association.

The Bulls are now on a six-game losing streak and have only won one of their last 10 games.

Before his Bulls stint, Hoiberg coached five seasons at Iowa State, leading the Cyclones to the Sweet 16 in 2014.

As a senior that season, Boylen was the runner-up to the late Reggie Lewis, who was drafted by the Boston Celtics, as the conference player of the year. According to one source, Hoiberg believed he would have the chance to coach a fully healthy team before being evaluated, which the Sun-Times reported Sunday. "And I think eventually, everybody was like, 'Yo, they're either going to build the team around Jimmy, or they're going to go the route with Fred, the up-and-down, shoot a lot of threes (style)". In more than three seasons, the Bulls were 115-155 under Hoiberg.

The Bulls signed Hoiberg in 2015 to a five-year, $25 million contract. When the Bulls hired Hoiberg in 2015, it was a move that put emphasis on youth movement.
