Breaking: Bucks hire Mike Budenholzer

Per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer has reached an agreement to become the new head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Budenholzer spent 5 seasons with the Hawks, compiling a record of 213-197. He won the Coach of the Year award for his work during the 2014-15 season.

Budenholzer will join a Milwaukee Bucks squad that is oozing with talent, led by the freakishly athletic Giannis Antetokounmpo. In Antetokounmpo’s time in Milwaukee, the Bucks haven’t made it past the first round of the playoffs, but Budenholzer should help them reach that goal in the near future.

Budenholzer mutually agreed to part ways with the Hawks after Atlanta’s 24-58 2018 campaign, when it became clear that his perspective of the direction of the franchise didn’t align with that of the front office.

While it is sad to see Budenholzer go, we as Hawks fans should wish him all the best with the Bucks.
