After the Bulls lost Game 6 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Derrick Rose was asked about the future of head coach Tom Thibodeau.

Rose said if it was up to him, he would bring Thibodeau back.

Thibodeau has coached the Bulls for five seasons and has formed a special bond with the 2011 MVP.

Other Bulls including Joakim Noah and Taj Gibson expressed their support for Thibodeau, as well.

A lot of speculation after the game about Bulls owner Jerry Reinsdorf entering the Bulls locker room with an angry look on his face, but this could be because his franchise was knocked out of the playoffs, again.

Until someone tells Thibodeau that he’s either fired or traded, he expects to be the coach of the Bulls next season.
