In early August, the Bulls fired Jim Boylen after only two seasons and started searching for a new head coach.
Donovan recently parted ways with the Oklahoma City Thunder after a first round exit in the playoffs against the Oklahoma City Thunder. In his five season with the organization, the team made an appearance in the NBA playoffs and reached the Western Conference Finals once.
Arturas Karnisovas the Bulls Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations welcomed him and shared his hopes about Donovan leading the organization to success. Following comes from the Bulls statement:
“We are very pleased to welcome Billy and his family to the Chicago Bulls. The success that he has sustained over the course of his coaching career puts him on a different level. We feel his ability to help his players reach their potential, both individually and collectively, will mesh well with our roster. Whether as a player or as a coach, he has won everywhere his career has taken him, and we hope that will continue here in Chicago.”
