decision was mutually agreed upon by both parties and Skiles, which means Skiles is done with a record of 162 and 182 in four-plus seasons.

Jim Boylan will take over as interim coach of the team beginning with tonight’s game against Phoenix.

Skiles final game as coach came Saturday night when the Bucks lost to the Pacers in Indianapolis, a 95-80 defeat.  It was the fourth straight loss for the Bucks, who dropped back to .500 at 16-16.

Skiles led the Bucks to one playoff appearance in four seasons.  That came in the 2009-10 season when the Bucks went 46-36, the only time Skiles had a winning season.

Skiles was in the final year of his contract with the Bucks.
