The Wisconsin Herd, the G-League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks, are in the market for a new Head Coach.
Chase Buford has been announced as the new head coach for the Sydney Kings.
Buford was named the second head coach in Wisconsin Herd franchise history in July 2019, replacing Jordan Brady who went 33-67 in the first two seasons in Herd history.
The Wisconsin Herd didn’t play this year due to the coronavirus, but in Buford’s lone season (2019-20) the Herd went 33-10 before the season was suspended.
The franchise has always spoke highly of Buford’s impact with the Herd and Bucks rostered players.
“We are excited for Chase to pursue this opportunity with one of the best clubs in Australia,” Wisconsin Herd General Manager Dave Dean said. “We thank him for his dedication and leadership during our historic 2019-20 season and wish him all the best in his next chapter.”
