Bulls, Boylen agree to contract extension

Jim Boylen has agreed to a contract extension with the Bulls.

The Chicago Bulls and coach Jim Boylen have agreed to a contract extension, the team announced Friday.

Boylen replaced the fired Fred Hoiberg in December, having served as the team’s associate head coach.

“Jim has a strong vision on where he wants to take this team, and he has done a great job establishing the culture that we want this organization to stand for as we continue to progress,” executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson said in a press release Friday. “He has tremendous passion for developing young talent, is a strong communicator and a good fit for this team. The organization is confident in the direction that he is taking our players, and we are committed to him.”

Chicago finished 22-60 this season, the fourth-worst record in the NBA.
