Offseason

On Monday April 21, 2008, the Bucks introduced Scott Skiles as their new coach. Skiles becomes the 11th head coach in the history of the franchise.[2] Skiles was a former coach with the Chicago Bulls and Phoenix Suns coach. He agreed to a four-year deal to replace his close friend, Larry Krystkowiak.[3] Skiles stated that he is not backing away from his reputation for demanding a lot from his players.[3] Skiles, 44, has amassed an overall record of 281-251 (.528) as an NBA head coach.[2] He was hired as head coach of the Bulls on November 28, 2003, and inherited a team with a record of 4 wins and 12 losses.[2] While in Chicago, Skiles led the Bulls to three postseason appearances. The Bulls won 49 games in 2006-07, their most since they went 62-20 in ’97-98.[2] In the playoffs, the Bulls swept the defending NBA champion Miami Heat 4-0 in the first round of the 2007 NBA playoffs.
