Skiles to return for final year of Bucks contract
Scott Skiles will return to coach the Milwaukee Bucks next season.
Skiles told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Tuesday that he would be back as the team’s coach. His agent, Keith Glass, confirmed the decision in a telephone interview with The Associated Press.
Glass said Skiles will not necessarily receive an extension before next season. Skiles has a year left on his contract, which was extended in 2010.
Bucks officials did not immediately confirm the decision.
Skiles is 146-166 in four seasons with the Bucks. He led Milwaukee to a 46-win season and made the playoffs in 2009-2010, where the Bucks lost to the Atlanta Hawks. They have missed the postseason two straight seasons since then.
