Report: Bulls give Jim Boylen raise through next year

SALT LAKE CITY – Jim Boylen has a new deal worth more money.

According to multiple reports, under the revised contract, the Bulls are increasing Boylen’s salary this year and next year.

Boylen was making a little more than $800,000. The pay raise is believed to be a sign of good faith from the front office after Boylen helped offset the remaining $10 million owed to Fred Hoiberg through next season.

The Bulls have gone 5-13 under Boylen since Hoiberg was fired December 3rd.
