Del Harris expected to sign with Bulls today

New, comments

Dallas Morning News:

Del Harris, who served as assistant coach to Don Nelson and Avery Johnson over a nine-year stay with the organization, is expected to sign a contract today to be an assistant in Chicago for new Bulls' coach Vinny Del Negro, a source said.

Harris has spent more than 40 years in coaching at virtually every level. He has 506 wins as an NBA head coach.

He joined the Mavericks in 2000 and was top assistant to Nelson until Nelson gave over the coaching reins to Johnson in 2005. Harris served as a consultant last season.

Harris is one of the top assistants in the league. (Or at least well-compensated...so maybe he's just good at fooling people.)

This is a strange new feeling: I believe the Bulls actually have a good coaching staff.
