The Chicago Bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg on Monday, December 3, following the team's dismal start to the season which has left them near the foot of the Eastern Conference standings.

To discuss the move on Sports Feed, we had both Ricky O'Donnell and Jason Patt on the show to talk about the firing along with the team moving forward.

Hoiberg was named Chicago's head coach in June 2015 after spending five seasons at Iowa State, where the former player was nicknamed "The Mayor". The Bulls would end up making the playoffs in his second season after they finished with a 41-41 record, but they quickly chose to blow the team up after.

The Bulls have been hit hard by injuries this season, but at 5-19 only two teams have worse records. "I want to thank Fred for his dedication and efforts, as well as for his enduring commitment to our team".

The Bulls are now on a six-game losing streak and have only won one of their last 10 games.

Hoiberg was in the fourth season of a five-year deal that paid him $25 million.

Boylen has been with the Bulls since Jun. 17, 2015. His 33 years of coaching experience includes 20 seasons in the National Basketball Association, highlighted by National Basketball Association championships with the Houston Rockets in 1994 and 1995 and the San Antonio Spurs in 2014.
