MILWAUKEE (AP) -The Milwaukee Bucks have introduced new coach Scott Skiles.
The move comes less than a week after the firing of Larry Krystkowiak (krist-KOH'-vee-ak).
The 44-year-old Skiles brings extensive NBA head coaching experience and a disciplinarian approach to Milwaukee. That's something the Bucks didn't necessarily get from their two previous coaches, Krystkowiak and Terry Stotts.
Skiles, a close friend of Krystkowiak, was fired by Chicago in December after making the playoffs in three of his first four seasons as the Bulls' head coach. Skiles also coached three seasons in Phoenix.
