The Cleveland Cavaliers have hired Jim Boylan to be the lead assistant coach on Mike Brown’s staff, per Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Plain Dealer.
Boylan’s NBA coaching career started in Cleveland, where he served as a talent scout with the Cavaliers in 1992. His most recent exploits have been with the Milwaukee Bucks where he served as the interim head coach following the dismissal of Scott Skiles mid-season. (Interestingly enough, Boylan was also the interim head coach in Chicago when the Bulls fired Scott Skiles in 2007. His career record as an NBA head coach is 46-60, including one playoff appearance which occurred this past season with the Bucks.
Boylan’s hiring will land him on Mike Brown’s staff which also includes a holdover in Jamaal Mosley and the recently added Igor Kokoskov, previously with the Phoenix Suns.
