According to sources familiar with the situation, the fan favorite is in line to joincoaching staff for the upcoming season, CSNChicago.com has learned.
...formerassistant coach departed for a position with the in the offseason...it appears that Scalabrine is now a front-runner for the spot.
As Sam later notes, Scal not only has his two-year stint in Chicago, but a previous relationship in Boston where Thibs was an assistant himself.
He long stopped being useful as a player, as even last season when he was re-signed it was more for his coaching ability than anything.
