KC Johnson

Bulls can say what they want about going through process. They're locked and loaded on hiring Hoiberg. His job to lose.

Mike Mazzeo

Tom Thibodeau coached the #Bulls for five seasons. LeBron James made the NBA Finals in all five of those seasons.

Vincent Goodwill

Bulls assistant Andy Greer has been let go. As for the other assistants, that will be determined by the new coach

Adam Zagoria

The Chicago Bulls will hire new coach 'when we find the right guy' zagsblog.com/articles/with-…

Nick Friedell

Pax: "There wasn't a point of no return." Says again if Bulls were playing for a title this wouldn't be happening.

Tim Bontemps

I enjoy that the Bulls would "probably" not be holding a press conference firing their coach if they won a title. twitter.com/nickfriedell/s…

Adam Zagoria

Bulls GM Gar Forman on a timeframe for hiring Fred Hoiberg, um, the next coach: "It's when we find the right guy."

Nick Friedell

Pax admits that Bulls probably wouldn't be sitting here if they had won a championship this season.

KC Johnson

Bulls exec VP John Paxson said players never witnessed animosity between management and Thibodeau. Doesn't think it had effect.

KC Johnson

Bulls exec VP John Paxson said Thibodeau was participant in discussions with medical people regarding minutes restrictions.

KC Johnson

Bulls exec VP John Paxson said minutes restrictions for Noah/Rose came from input from medical staff and "was absolutely the right thing."

Adam Zagoria

Gar Forman says Bulls will begin process of hiring a new coach "tonight and into the weekend." Won't get specific or give updates.

Nick Friedell

Gar says Bulls will start search for new coach tonight.

Nick Friedell

Gar says Bulls are looking for an "open and creative learner" as next head coach.

KC Johnson

Forman said Bulls are looking for "the right fit" for "our individual players and team and organization" in next coach. Wants leader.

Alex Raskin

The PR industry is really into the word "culture." I bet they got it on a white board and everything. #Bulls

Nick Friedell

Gar says "nothing could be further from truth" in regards to Bulls using Thibs as an asset. Says no team called to talk to Thibs.

KC Johnson

Forman reiterates what Tribune reported all along: Bulls would've granted permission for other teams to talk to Thibs. Nobody called.

KC Johnson

Forman said Bulls were not looking for asset or using situation as leverage ploy. Said major decision bigger than 2nd round pick.

Steve Kyler

Not quite $4 -- but I would give my new team a little bit of break at the Bulls expense twitter.com/nascarkenny/st…

Nick Friedell

Gar says Bulls need a "Culture of communication that builds a trust within organization ..."

Steve Kyler

Thunder didn't come close to the trash job the Bulls did on Thibbs. twitter.com/dan_kurt/statu…

KC Johnson

Bulls GM Gar Forman: "We want to thank Tom for all the contributions he made to the Bulls' organization."

Scottie Pippen

The culture that surrounds a team is of crucial importance. I'm optimistic about the Bulls future and believe in the front office.

Javier Ortiz

Pues los seis años del Tibodó ese en los Bulls se me han hecho largos

Scottie Pippen

I've got confidence in Pax and Gar. They will bring in a new coach who will fit the culture and help the Bulls grow and improve.

Kevin Pelton

Considering the Tom Thibodeau paradox: Did his Bulls teams overachieve or underachieve? es.pn/1HywMuM (In)

Scottie Pippen

Thibs had the Bulls moving in the right direction initially but things changed. A different leader on the sidelines became necessary.

Kristina Leahy

From Bulls press release: "Over the last five years we have had some success with Tom as our head coach." ---Some?!

Scottie Pippen

We all knew a change could be coming and I think the decision that was made was best for the Bulls.

Brian Mahoney

Someone will, but how does next coach get past that Bulls' statement? Telling you flat-out to expect and embrace management interference.

Bill Herenda

The President weighs in on Tom Thibodeau and the #Bulls #NBA twitter.com/POTUS/status/6…

Nick Friedell

Bulls assistant coach Andy Greer just left the Advocate Center. Bulls security was wheeling a lot of boxes out with him.

Roland Lazenby

Fred Hoiberg speculation begins after Bulls harshly fire coach Tom Thibodeau - goo.gl/alerts/LSk0 #GoogleAlerts

Vincent Goodwill

The next couple weeks for the Bulls will seem like you're hearing Kanye and Chris Rock on a track

John Schuhmann

Bulls press conference is scheduled for 3 p.m. ET. We'll have it on @NBATV & @NBAcom.

Frank Isola

The beginning of the end was the Bulls front office firing Tom's top assistant Ron Adams two years ago. Whatever became of Ron anyway? Hmmm.

Frank Isola

Anybody read a statement or hear a comment yet from Tom Thibodeau killing anyone associated with the Bulls? Or is he watching film?

Frank Isola

Firing Tom Thibodeau is such a no brainer that the Bulls felt compelled to issue the most convoluted statement killing him. Stay classy boys

John Reid

Fired from Bulls, Tom Thibodeau could emerge as candidate for Pelicans' job s.nola.com/cGA3uxj via @nolanews

Frank Isola

If Bulls are so sure this is the right move, why the need for the public character assassination? Very telling. Just fire him and move on.

Joe Cowley

Bulls next season: Each guy plays 24 minutes, and participation medals are handed out at the end of the year. Can't wait!

Flavio Tranquillo

Tom Thibodeau out in Chicago as Bulls seek 'change in approach' es.pn/1J96ROy

Joe Cowley

Heard Paul Konerko was asked to be a coach/player for the Bulls, but turned it down.

Jason Jones

Bulls want their pre-Thibodeau culture .... Paging Vinny Del Negro

Frank Isola

FYI: the Bulls announcement comes eight days before JVG can offer his thoughts during Finals telecast. Coincidence? Not bloody likely.

Frank Isola

Bulls never got over Jeff Van Gundy's public criticism. They convinced themselves Tom put him up to it when JVG does that for every coach

Travis Heath

What can one say about the Bulls organization? Incredible.

Jason Lieser

#Bulls coaching search starts (and ends) right here. http://t.co/uH6VbG3Qxn
