Bulls offer coaching job to Thibodeau

Source: Bulls make offer to Thibodeau

Quote:
The Chicago Bulls have offered their head coaching job to Boston Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau, a source familiar with the situation told ESPNChicago.com on Saturday.

This development comes after ESPN.com's Marc Stein reported Thibodeau had withdrawn his name from consideration for the New Orleans Hornets' coaching job.

In addition to getting interest from the Bulls and Hornets, Thibodeau was a strong candidate for the New jersey Nets' coaching opening, Stein reported. Thibodeau interviewed with the Nets before the Celtics left the East Coast for Los Angeles for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Early in the Bulls' coaching search, conventional wisdom indicated the team was looking at candidates who had prior head coaching experience. Thibodeau's extensive experience as an assistant, however, apparently was enough.

ESPNChicago.com had reported the Bulls were impressed with Thibodeau's basketball knowledge after a recent interview.

Those who worked closely with Thibodeau had high praise for him.

"Tom's a workaholic," Celtics forward Paul Pierce told ESPNChicago.com recently. "I'm always catching him in there working, watching film in his office. He's probably the most prepared coach I've ever seen."

Celtics coach Doc Rivers agreed.

"It's tough to get a picture of him, because he's always in the office," Rivers told ESPNChicago.com.

"Tom has great focus and [the players] buy in. That's really important. You can sell it, what we want, but we make it a point that, if you don't buy in, you don't play. I think whenever you have a -- [Orlando Magic assistant] Brendan Malone, the same thing here -- the Magic know Brendan, just like [the Celtics] know with Thibs, Stan [Van Gundy] is going to back Brendan 100 percent and I'm going to do the same with Thibs."

Prior to his stint in Boston, Thibodeau served as an assistant in Minnesota, San Antonio, Philadelphia, New York and Houston. Assuming the deal goes through, Thibodeau will replace Vinny Del Negro, who had an 82-82 record in two seasons with the Bulls.

Its nice to see two assistants get top jobs much better than getting old retreads.
Yes they will make mistakes as being the head coach and it will take time.
