Mike Budenholzer reaches agreement to become Bucks head coach

Mike Budenholzer reaches agreement to become Bucks head coach

According to a report from Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Milwaukee Bucks have officially hired Budenholzer to be their new head coach.

Budenholzer and the Atlanta Hawks parted ways this offseason.

Budenholzer beat a stable of other current and former Spurs assistants for the job, including Becky Hammon, Ettore Messina, and Monty Williams.

The Bucks wanted to have the two players - especially Antetokounmpo, the franchise star - to have a sense of the prospective next Bucks coach and encouraged the players to sit-down with Milwaukee's preferred candidate before the organization extended a formal offer, league sources said.

Jason Kidd was the head coach of the Bucks heading into the 2017-18 National Basketball Association season.

The Milwaukee Bucks have found their man.

Gery Woelfel of the Racine Journal Times then reported the coach was one of the favorites to fill the Bucks opening, while Marc Stein of the New York Times noted the Raptors' "strong interest" in him. He pulled out of contention for the Suns job after several conversations with ownership and management.

During Budenholzer's tenure, the Hawks made the playoffs four times, including a trip to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015. He won the NBA's Coach of the Year award back in 2014-15.

Before becoming a head coach with the Hawks, Budenholzer was an assistant coach for the San Antonio Spurs for 17 years.
