No, they are entirely different and separate theories.

The Big Bang Theory explains how the Universe as we see it today emerged from an extremely hot and dense state.

The Theory of Evolution explains how life forms change (and have changed) over time. It states that through the combined mechanisms of natural selection and genetic drift, organisms have the potential to change and give rise to new varieties of life.
