Mike Budenholzer is a name that goes back way long in the NBA. The four-time NBA winner, as the assistant coach of San Antonio Spurs, currently holds the position of the head coach for Milwaukee Bucks.
This two-time NBA Coach of the Year award recipient has been in this game for more than 2.5 decades. He had been married to his ex-wife, Mary Beth Budenholzer, and the former couple has four children together.
Mike Budenholzer’s Son William
William Vincent Budenholzer is the eldest son of Mike Budelholzer and Mary Beth Budenholzer. He sometimes accompanies his father to his games. William seems to be pretty close to his father but remains off the spotlight for most occasions. He, being the eldest son of the family, also probably looks after his siblings.
While his father Mike is popular as an NBA coach, William seems to avoid media as much as possible. There is little to no information about his professional or even personal life. The only thing we, as fans, can do right now is to hope he makes more media appearances and reveals a lot about his personal life.
Mike Budenholzer’s Daughter Savoia
Budenholzer’s daughter Savoia Elizabeth Budenholzer is one of the two daughters in the family. Although she has a presence on social media, she still remains passive on it. Her Instagram account features only a handful of photos and has very few followers than we had anticipated. Like her other siblings, Savoia also likes to keep things about her personal life to herself.
However, as we have seen her making an appearance on social media, we have hopes that she will share some of her life with the fans. Whether it is Mike Budenholzer’s strategy for his children to avoid any sort of controversies surrounding him or his own children’s desire to avoid attention, we will only know that if she comes out and reveals her personal life.
Mike Budenholzer’s Daughter Hanna
Mike Budenholzer’s daughter Hanna Louise Budenholzer is the second daughter in the family. From what we have seen so far, all of Mike Budenholzer’s children like to keep a really low profile. And Hanna is no different from her other siblings. She is nowhere to be found on social media, which makes you think either she is using an alias name or does not even have an account.
It is getting more evident that Mike is probably advising his children to avoid any sort of public attention. At this moment, we can only patiently hope to see all of Mike Budenholzer’s children to make more public appearances and reveal their fancy life as the children of an NBA coach.
Mike Budenholzer’s Son John
John Bent Budenholzer, being the smallest of all, has already begun to follow the footsteps of his father. He is the most popular kid among his siblings. He is often found accompanying his father to his games. Maybe it’s because both of them share a love and passion for basketball. We can also spot him playing 1-on-1 with big names such as Dennis Schröder, etc.
John is more than likely to follow his father’s passion for basketball and is looking really sharp. Who knows, we might see him playing in the NBA soon enough under his father’s coaching. Until then, let’s hold our horses.
Mike Is A Proud Father
Mike seems to be very proud of his children. The 55-year-old father of four became emotional after receiving the title of NBA coach of the year 2018-19. He added that his children have been inspiring and encouraging for him, so he wants to be the same for them. Mike really wants to be a perfect role model for his children and encourage them in every way possible.
While Mike’s children do not come out in media much, the family can be seen doing a lot of charitable works. They even made a basketball court at Holbrook High School and donated $100,000 to the school.
