Head coach Tom Thibodeau has finally, finally signed a contract extension with the Chicago Bulls. And now that he’ll be around in the Windy City for a while, there are several expectations for the defensive guru.
Derrick Rose, the face of the Bulls franchise, will begin the 2012-13 season on the bench recovering from an ACL injury that he suffered during last season’s playoffs.
With Rose expected to miss a huge chunk of the season, Thibodeau will certainly have his work cut out for him as he tries to guide the Bulls to yet another phenomenal performance.
Thibodeau has put together two unbelievable seasons in Chicago, leading the team to the league’s best regular season record both years.
Let's take a look at what fans should expect from Thibs—not just this season, but over the next few years.
