Jim Boylan Rumors
Bob Finnan: Source: #Cavs will keep Jim Boylan on new coach David Blatt’s staff. He’ll join Tyronn Lue on the coaching staff.
Jim Boylan is on the brink of returning to coaching. Boylan, who was fired as the Milwaukee Bucks head coach May 1, is expected to be hired by the Cleveland Cavaliers as head coach Mike Brown’s lead assistant.
Charles F. Gardner: Boylan will be top assistant for coach Mike Brown. “I really like his approach,” Boylan said. “It fits in nicely with what I like to do.”
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.
