OT: Scott Skiles fired 

Post#1 » by Cigamodnalro » Tue Jan 8, 2013 5:34 am

minutes after Jameer breaks his team assist record.

The Milwaukee Bucks and coach Scott Skiles have agreed to part ways immediately, USA Today Sports has learned. Story to come

Hate to see him get fired. He's a good coach, not perfect, but I hope he gets another shot somewhere else.

Not a good day for Scott Skiles. Wonder who the Bucks think can do better with their roster.

Actually surprised it took this long for them to give him the axe.

He wears out his welcome after awhile every place he's been.

He didn't really get fired. The Bucks told him to keep an open mind about signing an extension, asked about him staying, and he said there was no way he would come back. He basically quit. Good luck getting another job when you basically quit on a probable playoff team.
