The Milwaukee Bucks officially fired Jason Kidd on Monday afternoon, and if you didn't know better, you might think that the official team Twitter account was celebrating it.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.com first reported the firing.

Assistant coach Jeff Prunty will serve as interim head coach and will coach tonight's game against the Phoenix Suns.

"We appreciate everything that Jason has done for the Bucks organization, but we have decided to make a coaching change", general manager Jon Horst said in a release.

Kidd, 44, had a 139-152 record during his 3 1/2 seasons on the Bucks' sidelines.

The somewhat unexpected move - which came on the 50th anniversary of the N.B.A. awarding a franchise to Milwaukee - leaves a team now in line for the eighth playoff seed in the Eastern Conference looking for a new coach who can get more out of a talent-laden roster led by Antetokounmpo.

The Milwaukee Bucks have moved on from the Kidd era. The Bucks, now under-performing with a record of 23-22, are considered to have some of the best young players in the entire National Basketball Association.

Kidd shockingly left the Nets for the Bucks in the summer of 2014 to gain more control of the franchise he would be a part of. However, despite a talented roster that features All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo, Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon and recent trade acquisition Eric Bledsoe, the Bucks are an underwhelming 23-22.

Reports of Kidd leaving for the Bucks became public even as Larry Drew was still coaching in Milwaukee. He was previously the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets.

Antetokounmpo, who developed into one of the NBA's top players under Kidd's leadership, was reportedly "devastated" by the news of Kidd's ouster.
