Pete Myers will be the interim head coach and general Manager John Paxson hopes to name a full-time replacement within the next week.
That would definitely be their best move. Good call...TXLAKERFAN wrote:isiah thomas???

I would say they would get Doc now, but it looks like he wants a break and is done coaching for the year, or he wouldn't have became an ABC announcer.
Bulls Fan wrote:I love Michael Jordan but he would be a [censored] coach in my opinion. His work ethic is like 500% times better than everyone in the league. The only PLAYER Jordan would be able to coach is Kobe..because their work ethic is so similar. They both have that "I dont give a fk about anyone else ill do whatever it takes to win" mentality. It would be cool, but Jordan expects to much out of players nowadays. Id hire as a consultant at best.
Isiah Thomas would be goood even though hes the reason i became a Bulls Fan. (First game i saw was between Bulls and Pistons....bulls lost...and i liked the guy who wore number 23 on the bulls because my birthday is on dec 23rd...lol this was back in like 87...first game i ever saw). Yeah basically i hate thomas...hiring him would be like Jordan playing side by side with Craig Ehlo. But hey, whatever it takes to win.
SI: Skiles, the former Suns coach, has emerged as a leading candidate to replace the fired Bill Cartwright in Chicago, according to league sources.
Bulls GM John Paxson won't comment on his coaching search, except to say that he hopes to name a replacement as soon as Friday. Others mentioned as possible candidates include Doug Collins, former Magic coach Doc Rivers, former Pacers coach Isiah Thomas and current Lakers assistant Jim Cleamons.
Chicago Sun-Times: Bulls operations chief John Paxson couldn't fire his entire roster Monday, so he relieved coach Bill Cartwright of his duties and warned the players things were about to get tougher.
It's believed that toughness will take the shape of Scott Skiles, expected to be named the Bulls' next coach at a news conference Friday. A deal had not been reached as of Monday night, according to a team insider, but both sides were working toward an agreement.
Pete Myers will serve as the interim coach tonight against the Dallas Mavericks and Wednesday in San Antonio.
