The Chicago Bulls will once again be in the market for a new head coach after the team fired Fred Hoiberg on Monday.

The Bulls are off to a 5-19 start to the season, and Hoiberg had gone just 115-155 in less than four seasons in Chicago. (RELATED: Fired NBA Coach Is Owed An Obscene Amount Of Money. It’s A Mind-Boggling Amount)


The Bulls made the playoffs just once in four seasons, and appear to be headed to the top of the lottery again this season.

All that being said, this is an attractive job. The Bulls have nice young players such as Zach Lavine, Wendell Carter, Jabari Parker, and Wendell Carter Jr., and should get another good player in the NBA Draft this year.

If the Bulls can get the right coach, they could have some good years ahead of them.

As for Hoiberg, he should have no problem getting another job, especially at the collegiate level. Before his tenure with the Bulls, he revived Iowa State’s basketball program and led it to four straight NCAA tournaments. He will be a top candidate for a lot of college jobs this spring.
