Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) - The Milwaukee Bucks fired head coach Jim Boylan on Wednesday.

Boylan was promoted to interim head coach on Jan. 8 after Scott Skiles and the Bucks mutually decided to part ways.

"At this time we feel it's in the best interest of the organization to seek a new coach to lead our team," Bucks general manager John Hammond said. "We appreciate Jim's efforts not only in his time as head coach, but in his entire tenure as a coach in Milwaukee. On behalf of the Bucks organization, I thank Jim for his five years here and his many contributions on and off the court. We wish Jim and his wife, Jane, the best."
