Easy there, folks. Jim BoylEn. With an "E". Not our former friend, Jim Boylan, to whom's coaching was once compared to a cup of pee-pee by the one and only Doug Thonus.
Jim Boylen is a lifer, having been an assistant coach all over the NBA since 1992. In fact, he began his coaching career at the stellar age of just 22 with Michigan State, and moved all the way up to being Gregg Popovich's third in charge. That takes some skill.
The 50-year old will join Fred Hoiberg on the sidelines next season, forgoing the choice of remaining in San Antonio, which rises one question: If Fred Hoiberg can convince anyone to leave San Antonio, will he be a secret weapon for future free agency pitches?
... Okay, fine. I'm getting ahead of myself here. But even so, this is a nice hire by Hoiberg and the Bulls.
