The Chicago Bulls have fired head coach Jim Boylen.

Boylen, 55, served as the Bulls’ head coach for parts of the last two seasons. The general gathered a 39-84 record during his tenure in Chicago.

The Bulls didn’t make the playoffs in either of his years at the helm of the coaching staff.

Now, the Bulls will have to find a new head coach as they continue their rebuild. The organization has a few promising young stars.

The franchise’s burgeoning young base includes Lauri Markkanen, Wendell Carter Jr. and Coby White. In addition, they have proven veterans Zach LaVine and Otto Porter Jr.

LaVine, 25, led the team in scoring this past season with 25.5 points while posting 4.8 boards and 4.2 assists per game.

The Bulls concluded the 2019-20 campaign with a 22-43 record. They finished with the No. 11 seed in the Eastern Conference.
