|Bulls/Thibs Talking Contract Extensions|
Signing to a contract extension Tom Thibodeau should currently be a top priority for the Chicago Bulls who have seen the loss of the vast majority of their 'Bench Mob' from last season. Thibodeau - the man responsible for helpng the Bulls clinch the best record in the East last season amidst on-going injuries to Derrick Rose - and Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf have resumed talks on extending the 2011 Coach of the Year.
Chicago Bulls chairman Jerry Reinsdorf and coach Tom Thibodeau have resumed negotiations about a contract extension for Thibodeau, according to a source familiar with the situation.
Thibodeau, who won 100 games faster than any coach in NBA history, was hired two summers ago after serving as an assistant for the Boston Celtics under Doc Rivers. The Bulls have led the league in regular-season wins both years under Thibodeau, who won coach of the year honors in his first season and finished second last season.
Reports surfaced last season that Thibodeau was unhappy he did not have an extension secured. Forman then appeared on "The Carmen, Jurko & Harry Show" on ESPN 1000 and stated that talks had begun before last season and would resume after the season.
Thibodeau and Forman did not immediately return phone messages.
