Tom Thibodeau, Chicago Bulls Agree to 4-Year Extension

As expected, the Bulls inked head coach Tom Thibodeau to a long-term extension. Per the Chicago Tribune: “Coach Tom Thibodeau has agreed to a four-year contract extension with the Chicago Bulls, general manager Gar Forman said Monday. ‘I’m biased, but I think Tom is the best coach in the NBA,’ Forman said at the Berto Center as the team prepared to open training camp. ‘I watch his practice every day and his attention to detail is incredible.’ The Bulls previously had picked up Thibodeau’s option for the 2012-13 season, but talks to extend the deal had stalled over contract length and value. Said Thibodeau, ‘Obviously, I’m glad we got the contract done. I’m looking forward to the challenge ahead. My expectations remain the same.’”

    Hope he got paid, he’s as modest as Derrick Rose is. Our team should be good, even though I’d prefer a tank so we can possibly get Jabari but hey that’s ok. And Thibs is the best coach.

    No, not sure how great he’d be. As a Muslim, I’m a fan(yeah I’m mad bias) but as a Bulls fan not sure if I’d take a chance on his transition to the NBA. But we’ll see this NCAA season.
