The Bulls fired Thibodeau last week after months of turmoil behind the scenes between the coach and front office. Gibson’s post came hours before the Bulls were set to announce Fred Hoiberg as the next coach.

Pau Gasol also posted a heartfelt farewell to Thibodeau. On his blog, Gasol wrote:

“I want to thank Coach Thibodeau for his trust and support this season. I am sure his dismissal was a difficult decision for the Bulls organization to make, but I am confident they have a solid plan to ensure the continued success of the franchise. We all have extremely high expectations for the team next season and we will do whatever it takes to bring a championship back to Chicago. Go Bulls!”
