Pete Myers Fired as Bulls Assistant Coach

Tom Thibodeau informed Myers that his services will no longer be needed on Chicago’s bench. The Tribune reports: “In a surprise development, Tom Thibodeau is searching for an assistant coach after informing veteran incumbent Pete Myers he won’t use him on the bench, sources said. The Bulls’ staff of Myers, Ron Adams and Andy Greer appeared to be set, and Thibodeau even commented on it during an interview with the Tribune during summer-league play. Thibodeau, who coached Myers during his playing days on the Knicks, praised Myers as a teacher who related well to players. It’s unclear what changed Thibodeau’s mind on Myers, who served as head coach for the Bulls’ summer-league team … Myers, who informed several players of Thibodeau’s decision late Wednesday, might move to the Bulls’ front office, where he has worked before.”

    Myers will most likely get a job in the head office

    not being loyal would be to dump his ass out on the road without a job

    Dissapointed my chico bulls would let myers go. Still remember watching him play #20 jersey when mj retired the 1st time. Remember him and pip connecting on 4 point plays n the same game. Been w/bulls organization 4 a very long time. Hope he gets on board w/som1 soon. Best of luck 2 u petey

    Eboy are you insinuating that the heat have some type of loyalty the bulls don’t? These are grown man sports, and they have to make grown man decisions (Not that I ever expect you to understand that.) Besides what contributions did Pete Myers ever give to the bulls beside lackluster seasons? He’ll still most likely get a job in the front office. Seriously you must be hoping mouthwash is going on sale in south beach rite now, because your probably spending alot of money rinsing out the taste of brons jockstrap. I can’t wait to come back here when the Lakers win the chip this year and see the excuses you stumble out with.
