Chicago Bulls’ Jerry Reinsdorf Wants to Give Jim Boylen a Chance

In two years as the Chicago Bulls’ head coach, Boylen is 39-84. If anyone reading this is wondering, that’s not good.


According to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne, she did an interview with Chicago Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf shortly after the filming of ‘The Last Dance.’ In this interview, Jerry stated he wants Artūras Karnišovas and the new Bulls’ front office to give Jim Boylen a chance.

All Bulls and White Sox fans know that Jerry is a loyal guy to anybody in a management role. Jim must have made one hell of an impression on the now 84-year-old. It’s truly puzzling because reports came out last year that Jerry was not happy with the direction of the team. It now seems more and more likely that Gar Forman seemed to get all the blame for the Bulls’ downfall.

In two years as the Chicago Bulls’ head coach, Boylen is 39-84. If anyone reading this is wondering, that’s not good. The way the players responded to him was also a huge red flag. He’s had run-ins with Zach LaVine and Lauri Markkanen. His “wannabe” Greg Popovich attitude toward media is offputting as well.

Hopefully this is just a rumor or words just taken out of context. The new front office put in place should have their say in who coaches this team moving forward without any pressure from the owner. Only time will tell.

    Knowing chairman reinsdorf propensity for being let’s say frugal when it comes to coaches and managers. I think Terry Bevingyon is looking for a job and might like a shot as the Bulls coach

    Let’s get real… Everyone knows Jerry is cheap. Bulls are still paying Hoiberg. Plus the rumor is Boylen is the low paid head coach in the league. So the only thing Ebenezer Reinsdorf sees is wasted $$$ signs.

    And, at the end of the day he caused this situation with his propensity for mediocrity and complacency. Had he took action years ago and fired Pax and Formen then… he wouldn’t be here now.

    If Reinsdorf forces the new management team to keep Boylen, then Artie and company should quit… because they do not have the full autonomy they were promised. I doubted that fact from the beginning based on the Reinsdorf’s habits.
