Chicago Bulls Fire Head Coach Tom Thibodeau After Five Seasons


The NBA will always be a players’ league, and the Chicago Bulls just proved that yet again. The much-rumored falling out between the Chicago Bulls and Tom Thibodeau came to a head today as the franchise fired the coach after five seasons and a 255-139 record.

Coach Thib’s hard-charging style had him clash with the front office over the years and has arguably caused the Bulls’ stars,┬áincluding the likes of Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah, and former Bull Luol Deng, to be burned out at the end of the year.

Thibodeau has reportedly drawn interest from the New Orleans Hornets, Orlando Magic and Los Angeles Lakers.
