He was the San Antonio Spurs’ associate head coach from 1999 to 2007, during which time they won four championships. Mike branched off in 2013 in an effort to make himself known.
In 2013, Mike Budenholzer was chosen to lead the Atlanta Hawks. During his time with them, they weren’t very successful. While he was a member of the Hawks, his wife Mary Beth Budenholzer made her debut in front of the public.
Unfortunately, she had a medical emergency at this point, forcing Mike to leave the Hawks for a short period of time before formally leaving the team.
Mike and Mary made the decision to get divorced after some time. The reason the cause was never made public is because both persons keep their personal lives pretty private.
Together, they have four children: Savoia Elizabeth, William Vincent, Hanna Lousie, and Vincent.
John Bent is starting to play basketball like his father. In 2018, Coach Bud signed a contract with the Milwaukee Bucks, but this coincided with his heartbreaking divorce.
The Bucks and Budenholzer would both accomplish remarkable exploits in the years that followed.
During the Heat vs. Bucks playoff series, coach Mike Budenholzer lost his brother
In 2022–23, the Bucks had a tremendous regular season, but they fell short of their potential in the postseason. Their star player, Giannis Antetokounmpo, missed two games because of a back injury he suffered in Game 1.
However, there was a more important reason why the Bucks were unable to win the series. Mike’s brother was killed in a terrible car collision. The victims’ loved ones will definitely be shocked by such an incident.
Mike Budenholzer, one of seven children, was the youngest of four brothers. No details are known about the other brothers though. Head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers Darvin Ham was the first to offer his thoughts on Mike’s situation.
Coach Bud is going through a lot on a personal level. He just lost his brother, so my apologies Bud if I wasn’t supposed to let anybody know. He and I’ve been texting. I love those guys.”
