Del Negro New Bulls Head Coach

Vinnie apparently will be named Bulls new head coach later today or tomorrow.

The Bulls have hired Vinny Del Negro as their new head coach, according to league sources.

Del Negro was a late arrival to the search process and has no formal coaching experience. He spent last season as an assistant to Phoenix Suns general manager Steve Kerr. Prior to that, he was a broadcaster for the Suns and San Antonio Spurs.

Del Negro, 41, spent 12 seasons playing point guard for five NBA teams, mostly with the Spurs. He averaged 9.1 points and 3.2 assists.

The Springfield, Mass., native beat out former Minnesota coach Dwane Casey and Sacramento assistant Chuck Person for the Bulls' job, which has been vacant since interim coach Jim Boylan was dismissed on April 17.

Um, was Del Negro, Casey, or Person really the best selection they had to pick from for a great market with a #1 pick?

What's Avery doing? Hiking and getting high in Australia with Dirk?

I really don't like this too much. This guy has no previous coaching experience at all. I can see free agents begging to come play for Chicago now.

But yet again most rookie coaches make better impressions than the experienced veteran coaches. I guess you could give him a chance, we'll find out.
