Former Milwaukee Bucks coach Jim Boylan has been named the lead assistant coach on Mike Brown's staff in Cleveland, FOXSportsWisconsin.com has learned. Boylan, 57, led the Bucks to a 22-28 record and a first-round playoff loss to Miami after taking over for Scott Skiles on Jan. 8. After getting swept by the eventual NBA Champions, Boylan was not offered a contract to return as head coach, and the Bucks eventually hired Larry Drew as his successor. Prior to taking over as head coach, Boylan spent four seasons as Skiles' lead assistant in Milwaukee. When Skiles was fired by the Bulls just 25 games into the 2007-08 season, Boylan was elevated from lead assistant to head coach and went 24-32. The starting point guard on Marquette University's 1977 national championship team, Boylan played professionally in Europe for eight years before Jud Heathcote's staff at Michigan State as an assistant coach in 1986. Boylan was named the head coach at New Hampshire in 1989, but went 15-69 in three seasons in charge of the Wildcats. He then broke into the NBA as a scout with the Cavaliers in 1992 before landing his first NBA assistant coaching job under Brian Hill in Vancouver in 1997. He stayed in Vancouver under Hill and Lionel Hollins before joining Skiles' staff in Phoenix in 2001. Boylan spent the 2003-04 season in Atlanta under Terry Stotts, but rejoined Skiles in Chicago the following season. Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter
