The Cleveland Cavaliers continue their front office revamp with the hiring of Jim Boylan as the new lead assistant coach.
Boylan is a veteran assistant who spent time coaching in Switzerland until starting his NBA coaching career with Cleveland in 1992. After five years with the Cavs as a talent scout, he was an assistant coach with the Vancouver Grizzlies, Phoenix Suns, Atlanta Hawks, Chicago Bulls and most recently the Milwaukee Bucks. In his brief time as an interim head coach in Chicago during the 2007-2008 regular season, Boylan posted a record of 46-60.
This is another example of the Cavaliers desire for change in the front office this off-season following the firing of Byron Scott and subsequent hiring of new head coach Mike Brown in April.
