Jim Boylen To Coach Bulls Through 2020, Receives Pay Increase

Boylen's players contacted the NBA Players Association less than a week into his tenure because they felt he was being too tough with over-the-top workouts.

According to a report from Joe Cowley, the Bulls have bumped up Jim Boylen's pay, and plan to keep him on as head coach through at least the 2019-20 season.

When he was first named head coach, Boylen was working on his associate head coaching deal, which paid him just over $800,000 the rest of this season and through next season. The team has gone 5-13 since the change. He already was guaranteed the almost $1 million in his previous contract as associate head coach.

The Bulls are now paying out the remainder of Fred Hoiberg's $5 million-per-year deal through next season. Boylen's existing deal ran through 2019-20 as an assistant, and now reportedly comes with an elevated partial guarantee. Boylen may not be the world's best coach, but he will certainly be among the cheapest. The Bulls, having lost six straight before Saturday night's 110-102 loss at Utah and fresh off a 37-point blowout at Golden State, were perceived to be rewarding the captain of a steadily sinking ship.
