There are a lot of people who believe the Warriors need to hit a home run hire after firing Mark Jackson. Despite widely reported personality clashes in the front office, Jackson did win 51 games last year and make the playoffs twice.
The name that everyone seems to want is Bulls Head Coach Tom Thibodeau. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the Warriors are debating reaching out to speak with Thibodeau:
The possibility of reaching out to the Chicago Bulls for permission to speak with coach Tom Thibodeau will also be a consideration, league sources said.
This has to be considered a very slim chance at this point. It’s much more likely that the Warriors will try to move quickly on Steve Kerr who seems to be the hottest coach that doesn’t have a job right now. It will be very interesting to see how this turns out for Golden State.
