WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE NBA JAM
After four seasons, one playoff appearance, and a 162-182 record, head coach Scott Skiles and the Milwaukee Bucks have parted ways.
Scott Skiles will return to coach the Milwaukee Bucks next season.
Skiles told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Tuesday that he would be back as the team's coach. His agent, Keith Glass, confirmed the decision in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.

ST. FRANCIS, Wisc. Just 12 hours or so after the Milwaukee Bucks' season had ended -- one coaches and players alike described most often with one word: "disappointing" -- Bucks coach Scott Skiles stood on the court of the team's practice facility, responding to questions about what to expect of his team next season and whether he'd even be there to see it....
For the moment, Scott Skiles remains the Milwaukee Bucks' head coach.
Speaking to reporters at the Bucks' training facility Friday morning, Skiles said he will meet soon with Sen. Herb Kohl, the team's owner, to discuss a disappointing end to what had been a promising season after a blockbuster trade. Beyond that, Skiles wouldn't speculate on his future in Milwaukee...

MILWAUKEE Even with a win, Bucks coach Scott Skiles did not leave the arena Friday night in good spirits.
With the league's worst team -- the 7-46 Charlotte Bobcats -- in Milwaukee, the Bucks were losing with less than four minutes remaining. Though a 12-6 run the rest of the way gave Skiles' group a much-needed win as they chase the Eastern Conference's final playoff...
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. Since Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles arrived in Milwaukee three-plus seasons ago, he has said that if his team's offense can consistently score in the mid- to upper 90s, his team will be in good shape.

Unfortunately for the Bucks, that hasn'...
ALL THE RIGHT REASONS
Milwaukee Bucks coach Scott Skiles says he got ejected from his team's game against the Cavs on purpose. Stephen Jackson says it sparked the team's overtime win.
As much as the Bucks have struggled this season, especially in the second half, there is reason for optimism as the team continues its west coast road trip tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers.Once again, head coach Scott Skiles' team is among the league's best defensive squads. The Bucks are second in turnovers forced (19.2 per game), third in opponents' field goal...
In opening a stretch of five games in seven days against Western Conference opponents, the Milwaukee Bucks were hoping to build off the momentum of two consecutive victories by taking advantage of a Denver squad playing its third game in as many nights.
Unfortunately, another bad quarter doomed the Bucks, who fell to the Nuggets 91-86 Monday night in Denver.
Unlike in the previous...
ST. FRANCIS, Wis. As the Milwaukee Bucks prepare for their second and final exhibition game, Wednesday night against Minnesota at the Bradley Center, head coach Scott Skiles isn't quite sure what to expect from his team.
The Bucks and Timberwolves faced off last Saturday at the Target Center in Minneapolis in the exhibition opener. Minnesota rallied from a 10-point deficit...
