The Brooklyn Nets are officially searching for a new head coach. With all options open, the Nets have looked into someone Bulls fans are very familiar with.

Sporting News NBA reporter Mitch Lawrence reports that the Nets have reached out to former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau.

The move isn’t a surprise. Brooklyn was interested in Thibodeau before he took the job with the Bulls. Since being fired, Thibodeau has garnered interest from just about every team looking for a head coach.

Thibodeau is still being paid by the Bulls, who fired Thibodeau with two years left on his contract. The Bulls are paying their former coach $4.375 million this year.

While the Nets are the most immediate option for Thibodeau, they are likely far from the only team that will be interested in the defensive minded coach. In the coming offseason, Thibodeau will once again be one of the top options for any team needing a coach.

The Nets got off to a slow start this season, currently sitting in second to last place in the Eastern Conference with a 10-28 record. Lionel Hollins was fired Monday.
