Milwaukee Bucks reportedly hire former 76ers coach Doc Rivers to be next head coach

Hours after the Milwaukee Bucks informed former head coach Adrian Griffin they would no longer need his services, CNN Sports reported that the team is signing Doc Rivers to the same position.

Rivers, 62, led the Philadelphia 76ers to a 54-28 record last season and helped Joel Embiid win his first ever MVP award last season. The team took a 3-2 lead against Boston in last year’s Eastern Conference semifinals, but lost Games 6 and 7. Rivers was fired shortly after the loss. He spent three seasons in Philadelphia.

Rivers won his first and only championship with Boston in 2008 after the squad acquired Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett via trade. He coached Boston from 2004-2013 and the Los Angeles Clippers from 2013-2020. He most recently served as an announcer for ESPN.

This is a developing story.
