“This was a difficult decision to make during the season,” Horst said. “We are working immediately toward hiring our next head coach. We thank Coach Griffin for his hard work and contributions to the team.”
Bucks assistant coach Joe Prunty will serve as interim head coach.
Milwaukee is currently 30-13 and tied with the Minnesota Timberwolves for the league’s second-best record.
