Boylan confirmed the reports in an interview with the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
“They've got a lot of young guys coming in and it's exciting to be part of that," Boylan told the Journal-Sentinel. "I'm really looking forward to it.”
Boylan took over at mid-season for Scott Skiles, leading the Bucks to the playoffs, where they were swept in four games by Miami. The Bucks were 22-28 under Boylan.
Boylan joined Skiles’ staff in 2008. He previously spent time as the lead assistant an interim coach (207-08) with the Chicago Bulls. Long before that, he was an advanced scout and video coordinator with the Cavs under Lenny Wilkens and Mike Fratello (1992-97).
Boylan told the Journal-Sentinel his talks with Brown went well.
"I really like his approach," Boylan said. "It fits in nicely with what I like to do. I've been in contact with several teams since being let go by the Bucks but I kept it quiet. I'm real happy and excited."
Boylan has also been an assistant with the Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns and Vancouver Grizzlies.
