Tom Thibodeau says he intends to be the Bulls' coach next season
Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau says he believes he will be with the Chicago Bulls next season, according to David Haugh of the Chicago Tribune.
Thibodeau's tenure with the Bulls has been the object of much speculation this season, after the Bulls' front office released Thibodeau's top assistant, Ron Adams, allegedly causing tension between GM Gar Forman and the team's head coach.
The 2011 Coach of the Year award winner said that he plans to honor his contract and is not looking to head to another team.
"I'm with a team that I love. I'm not sure why that'd be a question..I'm under contract. I'm planning on being here.''
NBC5 Chicago's Bryan Crawford reports that Thibodeau has also denied rumors that he has an under the table deal with the Knicks to become their coach after this season.
