The Milwaukee Bucks have been making a lot of noise in the NBA world after parting ways with coach Adrian Griffin. Griffin helped the Bucks reach second place in the Eastern Conference, but the team is going in a different direction. Also, Griffin was reportedly helped by Doc Rivers before his exoneration by the Milwaukee Bucks.
Griffin was hired as Milwaukee’s head coach in June 2023. He served only seven months before leaving the team. However, Griffin had his own difficulties, as. Doc Rivers would help him as an informal consultant at the behest of the Bucks, according to The Athletic.
Also, Rivers is considered a serious contender for the head coaching position in Milwaukee. The veteran coach signed as an analyst with ESPN in 2023 after leaving the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Bucks had a slump at the beginning of the 2023-24 season, which called Griffin’s competence into question. In particular, fans and critics became skeptical of the coach’s defensive schemes. Griffin has since helped the team turn itself around and achieve a spot among the top two in the Eastern Conference. However, the Bucks seem to want to take a different direction with the team and go hard on Doc Rivers.
