Jan. 8 (Bloomberg) -- The Milwaukee Bucks fired coach Scott Skiles after the team lost its fourth consecutive game.

The Bucks are 16-16, trailing the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers by three games in the National Basketball Association’s Central Division. Milwaukee lost to Indiana in its last game, 95-80 on Jan. 5.

“I believe this team can and will have success in the next 50 games and postseason,” Skiles said in a statement. “I want to thank the players for all of their hard work.”

Assistant Jim Boylan will assume the head coaching role for the remainder of the season, the team said.
