IFWT_Tom Thibodeau 1

Though the Chicago Bulls have been somewhat success despite the numerous losses of Derrick Rose, it is expected that Tom Thibodeau will be out as head coach if the Bulls are short of making it to the NBA Finals.  He surely won’t have trouble finding another job and the Orlando Magic are already reportedly waiting to see what happens with him.

The Orlando Magic have a coaching vacancy right now.

While there are a few people expected to be interviewed for the job —interim coach James Borrego, Scott Skiles, and Scott Brooks among them — Orlando has not started the search process yet. Why? The theory is they are waiting on Thibodeau, reports Josh Robbins at the Orlando Sentinel.

The theory mentioned most often revolves around current Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau. The league observers speculate that the Magic want to see whether the Bulls and Thibodeau will part ways after the Bulls conclude their playoff run….

League observers caution that Thibodeau’s hire by the Magic would not be a given even if Thibodeau becomes a coaching free agent.

It would be awkward to bring in someone like Brooks for an interview, and then have him stew and sit for a couple weeks (at least, maybe more than a month) while you wait on Thibodeau would be unprofessional. To put it kindly.
