Despite 23-22 Record, Milwaukee Bucks Fire Head Coach Jason Kidd

It has been a whirlwind of an up and down tenure, but after three and a half seasons, the Milwaukee Bucks have fired Head Coach Jason Kidd.

Despite a 23-22 record on the heels of a playoff appearance, the Bucks organization opted to move on from Kidd. Ironically enough, the players were notified before Kidd on the decision. Rising star Giannis Antetokounmpo called Kidd just minutes before the firing in an effort to save his head coach’s job.

Over his short time with the Bucks, Kidd was able to bring Milwaukee back to the playoffs while helping elevate Antetokounmpo’s game to the next level. That being said, even with the addition of Eric Bledsoe, the Bucks have continued to hover around the bottom of the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

“I enjoyed my time in Milwaukee,” Said Kidd in a statement. “There’s no regrets. We took an organization that was in a bad place and shined a light on it. They’re still young in running their race. Giannis is young in running his new race, as one of the best players in the world.”

Assistant Joe Prunty will serve as the interim head coach until the Bucks find a suitable replacement.
