Report: Thibodeau Offer To Be Made Official After The Finals

The Sun-Times reports that the announcement of Tom Thibodeau as Bulls coach won’t be made until after the Finals:

Although it’s a done deal and Thibodeau will become the franchise’s 18th coach, no official announcement will be made until after the NBA Finals because the league office discourages teams from making major announcements during the Finals.

Thibodeau, 50, is expected to remain in his job with the Celtics through the completion of the series.
