REPORT: Bucks hire former Atlanta head coach Mike Budenholzer as new head coach

MILWAUKEE (WSAW) -- After numerous interviews with candidates, the Milwaukee Bucks have found their new head coach.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the team has signed former Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer to a four-year deal.

The report comes just hours after it was reported that Budenholzer met with Bucks star Giannis Antetokoumpo earlier in the day.

Budenholzer met with team ownership Tuesday, and prior to Wednesday's report, had been considered a favorite for the job.

Budenholzer had also been linked to the Toronto Raptors head coaching vacancy.
