Fred Hoiberg Ousted as Bulls Head Coach Fred Hoiberg

But as the Bulls get ready to start December, they've chose to make a coaching change.

The Chicago Bulls have fired head coach Fred Hoiberg, the team announced on Monday, with Jim Boylen taking his place. It's a major step for the team who are finally starting to get a few healthy starters into the lineup as the new year approaches. Chicago has lost six straight games, including a 121-105 defeat at Houston on Saturday.

The Bulls have reportedly made a decision to fire head coach Fred Hoiberg after a 5-19 start to the season. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski said Monday that Hoiberg would likely return to the college coaching ranks.

Hoiberg spent over three seasons in Chicago, with a 115-155 overall mark, but last season's 27-55 record was the Bulls' worst since 2003-04.
