Any day now for Thibs


All signs point to these being Tom Thibodeau's last days as Bulls coach with a resolution planned for no later than Friday, sources told the Tribune. Since no team has asked for permission to interview Thibodeau, the Bulls appear poised to dismiss the 2011 coach of the year with two years and roughly $9 million remaining on his deal unless Chairman Jerry Reinsdorf unexpectedly intervenes at the last minute. Iowa State coach and former Bulls guard Fred Hoiberg is widely considered the front-runner to replace Thibodeau.
