Bulls hire Billy Donovan as new driver

The Chicago Bulls have hired Billy Donovan as their head coach.

That's what ESPN reported on Tuesday.

The 55-year-old was the driver for the Oklahoma City Thunder for the past five NBA campaigns. After the elimination of his team this summer, the Oklahoma club and the coach had decided by mutual agreement not to continue their partnership.

Donovan took the reins of this team in 2015 after 19 years as a University of Florida instructor. The Thunder made the playoffs in their five seasons at the helm and maintained a 243-157 record.

For their part, the Bulls showed coach Jim Boylen the door last August. In office since December 2018, he had shown a record of 39-84 and missed the playoffs twice.

The Chicago team haven't made it to the playoffs since the 2016-17 campaign.
