Boylen replaced Fred Hoiberg, who was fired in December. He agreed to a deal when Hoiberg was fired that went through next season, but now has a multi-year contract that will presumably keep him in Chicago longer.
He led the Bulls to a 17-41 record to close out the season, but they think that he is a good teacher to help the young team grow.
Boylen has experience as an assistant with Houston, Milwaukee, Indiana, San Antonio and Chicago.
