The Bucks have found their new head coach.

According to ESPN, Milwaukee has agreed to terms with former Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer to take over as the leading man for the Bucks.

Budenholzer was named the NBA Coach of the Year in 2014-15 but agreed to part ways with the Hawks after the season. He went 213-197 in five years in Atlanta.

The Bucks fired head coach Jason Kidd during the year.

Also in the running for the job was Spurs assistant Becky Hammon who would be the first female head coach in NBA history if she were to be hired by a team.
