Thibodeau to Interview for 76ers’ Vacancy
Posted by r1zzo23 on May 18, 2009
Tom Thibodeau will be interviewed by the Philadelphia 76ers for their head coaching vacancy.
The interview was confirmed by a person familiar with the decision who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because an announcement has not been made.
It’s not surprising to see Thibodeau get an interview this quick as he is the premiere defensive assistant coach in the entire league. Any team looking to take the next step towards title contender status should be looking to hire this guy. What will be interesting is to see how the Boston Celtics will play on the defensive end if he were to leave us. Just as equally as interesting would be to see how he defends the Boston Celtics if he’s coaching in Philly. Either way, I wish Tom the best and hope he makes a splash in this league as a head coach.
