While head coach Jim Boylan was dismissed from the team two weeks ago, his assistant coaches — Sidney Moncrief, Bill Peterson, Anthony Goldwire, Joe Wolf and Chris Gilmartin — are still under contract until the end of June. Whether any of them will be retained is uncertain. They aren’t the only ones in the Bucks organization on shaky ground. Player personnel director Dave Babcock, scouting director Billy McKinney and head athletic trainer Marc Boff, among others, are also in the final year of their contracts. Racine Journal-Times

The Milwaukee Bucks will begin a search immediately for a new head coach after informing Jim Boylan that he will not be offered a new contract, General Manager John Hammond announced. The decision was made after Hammond met with Boylan Wednesday morning at the Bucks Training Center in St. Francis, Wis. NBA.com

“At this time we feel it’s in the best interest of the organization to seek a new coach to lead our team,” said Hammond. “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.” NBA.com

Jim Boylan probably coached his last Bucks game Sunday. Boylan replaced the fired Scott Skiles on Jan. 8 and guided the Bucks into postseason play. But the Bucks struggled down the stretch during the regular season and didn’t play particularly well in the playoffs. There is speculation Boylan could learn of his fate as soon as Monday. “He did a good job.” Bucks center Larry Sanders said of Boylan. “He did his best he could under some tough conditions.” Racine Journal-Times
