Bucks reportedly hire Budenholzer as next head coach

REPORT: Bucks hire former Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer as new 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 was looking for a new job after parting ways with the rebuilding Atlanta Hawks.

Budenohlzer met with Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton earlier on Wednesday.

Budenholzer would take over for interim coach Joe Prunty, who took the reins when Jason Kidd was sacked in January.

The 48-year-old's time in Atlanta was widely considered to be successful, but as ownership looked to initiate a full rebuild, Budenholzer was eager to move on for another opportunity with a greater readiness to be competitive. There were quite a few other names mentioned as coaches of interest for the Bucks, but Budenholzer is one of the most underrated head coaches in the National Basketball Association. Messina could still be summoned to Milwaukee for a meeting with the players too, league sources said, but that will largely be determined on the Bucks next step with Budenholzer.

Before the split, the Hawks gave Budenholzer permission to speak with the Phoenix Suns and New York Knicks for their coaching openings.

The Hawks were Conference Finalists under Budenholzer in 2015, following a 60-win regular season that earned him Coach of the Year honors. He won four NBA Championships during his time with the Spurs.

Prior to that, Budenholzer worked as an assistant coach for the Spurs for 17 years.
