Tom Thibodeau has accepted the Bulls' 3-year offer to become the team's
18th head coach in franchise history, according to sources. No formal
announcement can be made until the conclusion of the NBA Finals between
the Lakers and Thibodeau's Celtics.
Also some info about his assistants:
Sources said Thibodeau is expected to keep Pete Myers on his staff
and bring with him former Bulls and current Thunder assistant Ron
Adams. Other candidates for his staff include Thunder assistant Mo
Cheeks, former Knicks assistant Andy Greer and former Kings coach Eric Musselman.
Former Bull Rick Brunson will be considered for player development roles, joining expected holdover Randy Brown.
I'm glad it's official, or at least as official as it can be prior to the end of the finals.
Nice job Gar/Pax on getting this one done. Scottie PIppen was also rumored to possibly be a candidate for an assistant coaching position by Will Perdue on Westwood One's coverage of the NBA.
I also like the assistant staff they're putting together, but I don't think Scottie ultimately ends up with the Bulls this season. I would like him to get a shot with us if he's interested, but I don't see it happening.
