This morning Chicago Bulls Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations John Paxson made the announcement of Hoiberg's firing. He compiled a 115-155 mark in his tenure, but last season's 27-55 record was the Bulls' worst since 2003-04.

As the young Bulls sank deeper into a hole, losing 10 of their past 11 and falling to 5-19 overall, Paxson took note of the postgame atmosphere. The hope was that the free-wheeling style Hoiberg used with the Cyclones would work in the National Basketball Association and that he would fare better than another former Iowa State coach, Tim Floyd, who went 49-190 record in three-plus seasons with the Bulls.

Boylen has been with the Bulls since Jun. 17, 2015. With 33 years of coaching experience, that includes 20 seasons in the NBA, Boylen has been a part of three NBA Championship teams.

Richard Shelby said he wouldn't rule out supporting the resolution this time when it comes up for a full vote . Graham said he would not vote for the Yemen resolution.

This season, Hoiberg has had Portis for only four games, Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen for one each and Denzel Valentine for zero.

The circumstances were different, but the results were just as disappointing. Most recently on the collegiate level, he was head coach at the University of Utah, where he led the Utes to the 2009 NCAA Tournament. Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler, Pau Gasol and Nikola Mirotic were among the departures as the Bulls tried to find the right formula.

"He did a good job with the individual players", Paxson said. On paper, Chicago looked like a team that could have a chance to at least compete for a playoff spot in a weaker Eastern Conference, but that simply has not been the case and Hoiberg is clearly taking the blame for that, as opposed to say, the weird ill-fitting roster. And we have a lot to play for in this program and this place.

"You can have a team that plays hard every night no matter who you put out there". Following four seasons in that role, he was promoted to assistant coach on Rudy Tomjanovich's staff.
