After the Chicago Bulls finished their first round of interviews for the vacant head coaching position, a new, exciting name entered the discussion.
Just when we thought the Chicago Bulls were progressing through the coaching candidates and ready to move on to the next stage in interviewing, things changed. The Oklahoma City Thunder and head coach Billy Donovan mutually agreed to part ways after the team did not renew his contract.
Donovan spent the past five years with the Thunder organization after coming up to the NBA from the Florida Gators collegiate program. Some may remember Donovan coaching Joakim Noah back in his college days where the coach’s Gators won back-to-back National Championships in 2006 and 2007.
