Jason Kidd Fired as Bucks Head Coach


The Bucks have fired head coach Jason Kidd. The team made the news official this (Monday) afternoon, after it was first reported by ESPN.com. Assistant coach Joe Prunty will serve as the team’s interim coach for tonight's game against the Phoenix Suns at the Bradley Center and a plan will be in place regarding the coaching staff for the regular season by Friday. Kidd was hired in 2014 and finishes his time in Milwaukee with a 139-152 record going in to tonight’s game. The Bucks are 23-22 and currently sit as the number eight seed in the Eastern Conference.

Bucks GM Jon Horst released the following statement on Kidd’s firing:

“We appreciate everything that Jason has done for the Bucks organization, but we have decided to make a coaching change,” said Horst. “We believe that a fresh approach and a change in leadership are needed to continue elevating our talented team towards the next level, bringing us closer to our goal of competing for championships. Jason led a historic turnaround during his first season and would guide our team to two playoff appearances. He also played a meaningful role in helping to keep the Bucks in Milwaukee. We thank him for all of his contributions and wish him the best.”
