Bulls Offseason 2012: Chicago's Adrian Griffin No Longer Being Considered For Portland's Head Coach Gig

Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin is no longer being considered for the head coaching job with the Portland Trail Blazers, as Chris Hayes of CSN Northwest reports. Griffin was one of the finalists being considered for the position, but it appears that Portland will go in a different direction to replace Nate McMillan.

According to Jason Quick of the Oregonian, the Blazers are still considering Dallas assistant Terry Stotts, Phoenix assistant Elston Turner, Orlando assistant Steve Clifford and interim head coach Kaleb Canales for the head coaching role.

Griffin, 38, was hired by the Bulls as an assistant coach back in 2010. He began his coaching career under former Bulls coach Scott Skiles in Milwaukee before returning to Chicago, where he played during for over a year-plus in 2006 and 2007.
