Del Negro to be fired on Tuesday

I guess the endorsements from Noah and Rose carried little weight.

Quote:
Vinny Del Negro met with Bulls Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf on Sunday, but the embattled coach's 11th-hour argument to keep his job won't change what the Tribune has reported since December 2009:

Del Negro is expected to be dismissed with one year and roughly $2 million remaining on his guaranteed three-year contract. Barring a snag, the Bulls will make this news official Tuesday.

At that point, executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson and general manager Gar Forman will embark on a search focusing on candidates with previous NBA head-coaching experience.

Doug Collins, Lawrence Frank, Kevin McHale, Maurice Cheeks, Byron Scott and Dwane Casey are some of the many names who fit that description and could receive interviews. Management is waiting to contact prospective candidates until Del Negro officially is dismissed.

They are always "planning" on firing him.

Just fire him already!!!

Whats wrong with RIGHT NOW. Or is everyone walking around the office saying things like "Hey Vinny. Have a good week!"...pretending nothing is happening.

Maybe Vinny is going all "Conan" today and spending like crazy knowing he is toast tomorrow.

At this point I would be tempted to give this guy the coaching job over Triano. That's how much confidence I have in JT at the moment.

Its sports. You get rid of Vinny's bench for cap room and he still makes the playoffs. Maybe if he had some sort of bench for the home stretch he could possibly hit the second round. Who knows the sports world is very strange esp. when it comes to coaches.

A bit of a bad situation for Del Negro - he's been a dead man walking for a few months now. Even if Chicago made the ECF he'd still have to be fired, just because...

Why was he fired? I thought he did a pretty good job at the Bulls. Triano is going to be good coach, give it time.

Very weird decision to fire him. Does management think they made the playoffs in spite of Del Negro? Just with talent of the roster?

Only logical explanation is that Wade requested specific coach to come to Chi...

So the coach that lead his team to the playoffs is the one being canned, yet the one who let his team play themselves out of the playoffs continues to have a job? Huh?

Management had some bad blood with him, I think the GM or someone grabbed his tie out of frustration for not playing Joakim Noah.. makes sense for Vinny to be fired, can't have that type of stuff flowing around a franchise.

Paxson Apologizes For Altercation

Quote:
Bulls vice president of basketball operations John Paxson apologized Tuesday for a physical altercation he had with Vinny Del Negro earlier this year.

Chicago fired Del Negro on Tuesday.

Bulls general manager Gar Forman said the altercation on March 30 after a game against the Phoenix Suns had nothing to do with Del Negro's dismissal.

"I want to apologize to fans and Vinny for what happened March 30 after the Phoenix game," Paxson said. "I hold myself accountable and responsible. I am not at all proud of how I handled the situation. I felt that at the time I was representing and standing up for a policy we put in place. I felt that way.

"But there's no question I was wrong in how I handled it. During the incident, I was not proud of the language I used or how I represented myself or the Bulls. And if I could have that moment back, I'd take it back. It was a heat-of-the-moment type of thing, and it's something I'm not proud of."
