"After 43 games into the season, the Milwaukee Bucks have decided to part ways with their first-year head coach, Adrian Griffin, as the team undergoes a mid-season coaching change."

"Despite holding one of the league's top records midway through his inaugural season, the Milwaukee Bucks made a surprising move on Tuesday, announcing the dismissal of coach Adrian Griffin after just 43 games."

"In a statement, Bucks General Manager Jon Horst acknowledged the challenging nature of the decision made during the season, stating, 'This was a difficult decision to make during the season. We are actively pursuing the hiring of our next head coach and express our gratitude to Coach Griffin for his dedicated efforts and contributions to the team.'"

"Despite holding an impressive 30-13 record and standing at No. 2 in the Eastern Conference as of Tuesday night, the Bucks' decision to part ways with their head coach marked a rare occurrence — boasting the best winning percentage for a team that dismissed its head coach mid-season since the Cavaliers parted ways with David Blatt during the 2015-16 season."
