Bucks bringing in Budenholzer as coach
Mike Budenholzer was out of work for 20 days.
The former Hawks coach reached an agreement to become the next head coach of the Bucks on Wednesday, according to a report by ESPN. The Hawks and Budenholzer agreed to part ways on April 26 after the former NBA coach of the year interviewed with the Suns and Knicks despite having two years and $14 million remaining on his contract.
Although the financial details of their departure are not known, the Hawks are expected to recoup some of the money owed to Budenholzer now that he has another job.
The Hawks hired Budenholzer in May of 2013. In his five seasons with the Hawks, Budenholzer compiled a 213-197 record. He led the team to a 60-win season and berth in the Eastern Conference finals in 2014-15.
