Milwaukee (WQOW) -- Jim Boylan is out as head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks.

Milwaukee's moving on without Boylan, who was promoted from assistant coach to interim head coach on January 7, after the Bucks fired head coach Scott Skiles.

Under Boylan, the Bucks went 22-28, and were swept out of the NBA playoffs by the Miami Heat.  Milwaukee general manager John Hammond says he'll be looking for a certain type of coach going forward.

"In this day and age, it seems like you need that coach who can show the player that he cares," Hammond says, "cares about them, and then coach the heck out of them after that."

Hammond says the search for a new coach will begin immediately.  Yahoo Sports reports Kelvin Sampson and Stan Van Gundy will be the top prospects.
