SCOTT SKILES is out as Milwaukee Bucks head coach and the team says assistant Jim Boylan will take over for the rest of the season. On Tuesday, Bucks general manager John Hammond said Skiles' exit was a mutual decision. The 48-year-old Skiles had a 162-182 record in five seasons with Milwaukee, with one playoff appearance. He is 443-433 as an NBA head coach over 12-plus seasons. The 57-year-old Boylan has been the lead assistant coach for the Bucks the past four seasons. The Bucks are 17-16 after defeating the visiting Phoenix Suns, 108-99.

Before Chicago played the 76ers last night, Bulls interim coach Jim Boylan talked about the need to stop the Sixers' transition game. Good thought, bad execution. The Sixers started running and scoring early, and Chicago remained stuck in retreat mode. The result: a 121-99 pasting of the Bulls before 18,620 at the Wachovia Center. The Sixers (37-35) ran to a 30-2 edge in fastbreak points as they continued their torrid stretch, which is going into its eighth week. Remember during the preseason, when there were some who predicted that the Bulls could reach the Eastern Conference finals?

The Chicago Bulls are downplaying a testy exchange between rookie Joakim Noah and Ben Wallace. "I know all about it. A couple of words passed back and forth between teammates. That's all it was," coach Jim Boylan said before the Bulls beat host Miami, 126-96, last night, handing the Heat its 11th straight loss. The two had a spat during the Bulls' loss to Orlando on Tuesday, but by yesterday, neither wanted to talk about it. Noah had a confrontation with assistant coach Ron Adams in practice Friday and sat out the next two games for disciplinary reasons.

Jim Boylan, Kennedy-Kenrick's four-sport all-Catholic League standout, has decided to stay close to home and will attend St. Joseph's University. Boylan said he signed a letter of intent with St. Joseph's on Sunday, with baseball the sport that determined his choice. "It came down to Fairfield and St. Joseph's, and the best offer was from St. Joe," he said. "Between those two, it came down to location, and I knew I'd be happy at St. Joe. " Boylan was an all-league performer for the Wolverines in soccer and as a football kicker in the fall, in basketball in the winter, and in baseball last spring.

Jim Boylan, the multitalented senior at Kennedy-Kenrick, has his athletic future all planned. He'll play baseball and be a football placekicker in college. Or, he'll play basketball and, of course, baseball. Or, he'll play soccer and placekick in the fall, and then play baseball in the spring. But he'd really rather be a basketball player. Whatever his decision, Boylan's playing career will definitely be hyphenated, as in two-sport athlete. And if he ever put the time into just one sport, he might have college coaches wearing out the sidewalk to the front door of his family's house.

Jim Boylan and Jeff Kane had great games for Kennedy-Kenrick in the first half of last night's Montgomery County Triangle Club Tournament at Norristown Area High School.

It was the eighth win in nine games for the Wolverines, the area's seventh-ranked team. Kennedy-Kenrick will meet Norristown in tonight's championship game. The Eagles advanced with a 72-61 victory over Cardinal Dougherty in the nightcap.

It was probably fitting that the most valuable player in the weekend's Babe Ruth Tip-Off Classic in Baltimore was a player who turned in a 16-strikeout performance last baseball season. Jim Boylan, Kennedy-Kenrick's pitching ace, scored a total of 35 points in two wins in the tournament at Cardinal Gibbons High School: 22 in Friday's 46-43 victory over St. Mary's, and 13 in Saturday night's 62-58 championship triumph over the host school. "Boylan just dominated the second half on Friday," Wolverines coach Bob McTamney said.

Kennedy-Kenrick unleashed a blistering offense to wear down Cardinal O'Hara, 27-0, last night at Roosevelt Field, and moved into a tie for second place in the Catholic League's Southern Division. With quarterback Christian DeChurch passing for 113 yards and the rushing game accounting for 177, Kennedy-Kenrick (3-4 overall, 3-1 league) led from the game's first series. The Wolverines looked unstoppable in the first period, controlling the ball for 8 minutes, 23 seconds, and rolling up 123 yards and nine first downs.

When some kids speak about keeping open their options for college, there is barely a need for the plural. And then there's Jim Boylan, a senior-to-be at Kennedy-Kenrick High in Norristown. For him, the word options somehow seems inadequate. Boylan might wind up receiving scholarship assistance for his soccer skills. Or his punting-kicking skills. Or his basketball skills. Or his baseball skills. Or his academic skills. Or his musical skills. Six options should be enough.

Jim Boylan is finding it tough to get a win these days, but that doesn't mean he's not a winner. Boylan, a 6-3, 185-pound junior, is a small forward on the basketball team at Kennedy-Kenrick High. Last fall, he was a first-team All-Catholic sweeper in soccer and a competent kicker-punter in football. Last spring, he was an honorable-mention pitcher on the Daily News All-City baseball team. That's four sports, if you're counting at home. Yesterday, Boylan hustled for 14 points, 14 rebounds and two steals, but K-K remained winless (0-7)
