The Chicago Bulls have brutally cast aside head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Their tersely-worded press release Thursday claimed that the team experienced “some success” during Thibs’ five-year reign.

Anyhow, U.S. President (and unabashed Bulls fan) Barack Obama said during a climate change Q&A on Twitter that he’s bummed about the dismissal, but the leader of the free world expects Thibodeau to land on his feet quickly.

Obama also offered some thoughts on the NBA Finals matchup.

Word out of the Windy City is that Fred Hoiberg is the leading candidate to take over coaching duties.
