John Paxson said that Hoiberg will be the Bulls coach next season, according to Nick Friedell of ESPN.
This is a bit surprising and it will be a story line to follow throughout the off-season. It was a general assumption that Hoiberg had lost the locker room and respect of his players throughout his second season as the Bulls head coach. He apparently has the backing of John Paxson and most likely will return as the Bulls head coach in year three.
