Del Negro to Coach Bulls

After a month and a half of speculation, rumor and conjecture, Vinny Del Negro is the new coach of the Chicago Bulls. Reportedly. We’ll see if this one holds up better than the other rumored hirings.

In case you’re wondering, Del Negro has no coaching experience. He is currently the assistant GM for the Suns, who filled a coaching vacancy of their own over the weekend. Apparently the Suns didn’t think he was worth a chance but the Bulls did.

How do you feel, Chicago fans? Is this a good hire? Did you want someone with experience or are you OK with a rookie running the team? Does this temper your short-term expectations for the team?
