The Milwaukee Bucks have found their man.

Budenholzer has experience as an National Basketball Association head coach, having last coached the Atlanta Hawks from 2013-18.


It didn't take long for the former NBA Coach of the Year to land a new gig.

A report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski earlier this week stated the 2015 Coach of the Year is the frontrunner in both the Milwaukee Bucks' and Toronto Raptors' searches.

The Raptors reportedly want the four-time National Basketball Association champion, but they also have a number of impressive internal candidates. The 2014-15 campaign featured a 60-22 record where the team earned the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference along with a trip to the conference finals.
