Former Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau was fired after the 2014-15 season for not communicating well with the front office and working players too hard in practice.

One former Bulls player said Thibodeau’s practices weren’t bad compared to other coaches. Free agent Nazr Mohammed said when he was at the University of Kentucky, Rick Pitino’s practices were a lot harder than Thibodeau’s.

Thibodeau was blamed for overworking players during practice and games to the point of damaging players, such as Derrick Rose’s constant lingering injuries.
