Bulls fire head coach Fred Hoiberg

They have lost their last six games.

"For us to sit here and think that just because we're getting guys back (we'll improve), I think that would've masked the problems that we've seen", Paxson said. "And that's what we were looking at".

Fred Hoiberg is out and Jim Boylen is in for the rest of the season and, according to John Paxson, 2019-2020 as well.

Hoiberg guided the Bulls to a 115-155 record in just over three seasons as head coach, including one playoff appearance during the 2016-17 season.

Hoiberg was named Chicago's head coach in June 2015 after spending five seasons as head coach at Iowa State.

That was a fact Paxson never shied away from pointing out, whether it was in reflecting on Hoiberg's work at the end of his first two seasons in Chicago or outlining his firing Monday in a media session at the Advocate Center. Boylen is "well regarded by management and ownership and has a chance to win the job permanently", the Chicago Tribune said.

"[The decision] was made most hard because all of us in this organization like Fred Hoiberg a lot", Paxson said. He has a passion and energy to him that I think our players will respond to. And we have a lot to play for in this program and this place. Individual development is not the same as the development of a team and a style of play and how you want to go about it.

The hope was that the freewheeling style Hoiberg used with the Cyclones would work in the National Basketball Association and that he would fare better than another former Iowa State coach, Tim Floyd, who went 49-190 in three-plus seasons with the Bulls.

Paxson also appeared disturbed by the Bulls' lack of offensive continuity. The team now has the worst offensive efficiency in the National Basketball Association and is now 20th in defense this season.

"We've had discussions with Fred and his staff for all the time he's been here, and we talked about a way of playing", Paxson said. It's not as simple as saying we would've got that with healthy players. We felt that here in the last several weeks, that something's different.
