Charlie Henry Rumors
This week alone, the Bulls have hosted Charlie Henry, who served as the Windy City Bulls head coach and Fred Hoiberg’s assistant coach and now serves as Nate Oates’ assistant at Alabama, and longtime NBA head coach Terry Stotts. “I got a chance to know him a little bit through Rick Carlisle; Rick and I are close,” Bulls coach Billy Donovan said of Stotts, who served as Carlisle’s assistant coach with the Mavericks.
On the coaching side, Windy City Bulls Head Coach Nate Loenser has returned to the Bulls to join Head Coach Fred Hoiberg’s coaching staff, while Assistant Coach Charlie Henry heads to Hoffman Estates as the Head Coach of Chicago’s G League affiliate.
The Chicago Bulls announced today that Randy Brown and Charlie Henry have been hired as assistant coaches, while Mike Wilhelm will be retained as an assistant coach on Fred Hoiberg’s coaching staff. In accordance with club policy, terms of the contracts were not announced. Brown, 47, has spent the last six seasons with the Bulls as assistant general manager (2013-15), special assistant to the general manager (2010-13) and director of player development (2009-10). Prior to his return to Chicago, Brown spent two seasons as an assistant coach for the Sacramento Kings. Originally drafted by the Kings in the second round (31st overall) of the 1991 NBA Draft, Brown played 12 seasons and was a member of three NBA Championship teams with the Bulls (1996, 1997, 1998), including the 1996 team that won an NBA-record 72 games during the regular season.
