The Chicago Bulls officially introduced Tom Thibodeau as their new head coach on Wednesday.
"I am very excited to be here and to join the Bulls organization. Chicago is a great city with great fans and a storied history," said Thibodeau. "I would like to thank Jerry Reinsdorf and Gar Forman for presenting me with such a terrific opportunity. We have a talented team with a good nucleus of players, and I am eager to get started."
While reports have the deal set set at around $6 million over two years with a team option, the Bulls did not reveal the details of the contract per team policy.
With the announcement, Thibodeau’s successful term as Associate Head Coach of the Celtics comes to an end after two trips to the Finals, including the Championship 2008 campaign.
