Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau has been among the numerous candidate to be linked with a number of vacant coaching positions in the NBA this year but so far has remained faithful to the Bulls. However, that may not be for long if he gets offered his dream job.

According to NBA insider Ric Bucher, Thibodeau is not exactly thrilled with life in Chicago but would only leave to coach the New York Knicks, something he calls a 'dream job'

Bucher reports:

“The relationship between Tom Thibodeau and the Chicago Bulls front office has not been great as of late...But that said, I’m told there is only one place that Thibodeau would push to go elsewhere and that’s to go back to the New York Knicks...I’m told by one source, is actually his dream job, to go back and get the Knicks back on the map. But short of that, no matter where he goes the grass is not always greener.”

These quotes are interesting as they come at a time when the Knicks themselves are struggling to find an available head coach who would be able to take on the rebuilding effort necessary in New York. 

Thibodeau still has a number of years left on his contract so it seems like it would take a considerable amount of compensation to prise one of the most popular coaches in basketball away from his team.

That is of course, presuming that Knicks president Phil Jackson would want to bring in Thibodeau. Recently, Jackson has been more interested in pursuing coaches or former players who played under him.

For the time being however, whether Thibodeau will be rewarded with his dream job remains to be seen.
