An NBA head coach has been fired this morning.
The Chicago Bulls have decided to part ways with head coach Fred Hoiberg, who previously coached at Iowa State.
The Bulls have been in a rebuilding process in recent years, following the decision to trade All-Star Jimmy Butler, but the team is off to a brutal start this season.
Chicago is 5-19 on the season and has lost six straight games.
The Bulls announced the decision this morning.
“The Chicago Bulls fired head coach Fred Hoiberg,” the team announced.

Hoiberg was one of the best coaches in college basketball, leading his alma mater in Iowa State, before deciding to leave for the NBA.
The former top college coach will likely be able to return to college basketball at a high level if he chooses to.
“The Bulls announced they have fired Fred Hoiberg. He’ll be an obvious candidate for good college openings come March,” college basketball writer Gary Parrish tweeted.
