The Milwaukee Bucks are making a change at head coach, reportedly firing Adrian Griffin only 43 games into his tenure.

Griffin’s ousting, reported Tuesday by ESPN, comes despite the star-powered Bucks boasting a 30-13 record, good for the No. 2 seed in the Eastern Conference.

Milwaukee hired Griffin, a former player and longtime NBA assistant, in the offseason after firing Mike Budenholzer, who led the Bucks to an NBA title in 2021.

The Bucks, who added perennial All-Star guard Damian Lillard to two-time MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo over the offseason, are considered an NBA Finals favorite.
