Hoiberg spent 4 seasons with the Bulls, and has undergone a regular season record of 115-155. In the 2016-17 season, Chicago made the playoffs under Hoiberg, but were knocked out in the first round.
As it stands currently, the Chicago Bulls hold a record of 5-19, and are 14th in the Eastern conference. With no clear star players on the active roster, the Bulls will continue to swing for the fences through the NBA Draft and free agency.
