The Milwaukee Bucks fired coach Larry Krystkowiak today, just one day after the team wrapped up the season with a 110-101 overtime loss at Minnesota. The move came as Krystkowiak met with Bucks General Manager John Hammond this morning at the teams headquarters in St. Francis.
"Larry Krystkowiak is a good man who worked very hard for the Milwaukee Bucks," said Hammond. "Sometimes despite even the best efforts, the results don't end up how we want them. At this time, I feel it is in the best interest of our franchise to make a change at the head coaching position. I want to thank Larry for his hard work and dedication to our team, and our entire organization wishes him and his family well."
In less than two seasons as head coach of the Bucks, Krystkowiak compiled a 31-69 record (.310). He was named head coach on March 14, 2007, replacing Terry Stotts. He originally came to Milwaukee following two seasons as the head coach at his alma mater, the University of Montana.
Krystkowiak remains Montana's all-time leader in points (2,017) and rebounds (1,105) after playing four years for the Grizzlies from 1982-86.
