The Bulls announced Thursday via press release that Pete Myers will be joining Fred Hoiberg’s coaching staff as an assistant coach.
Myers returns to the Bulls for a second time after being an assistant coach under Mark Jackson’s staff for the Golden State Warriors from 2011-14. He was last with the Bulls as an assistant coach (2001-10) and a scout before that (2000-01, 2011). He acted as an interim coach for three games as well: two during the 2003-04 season and one during the 2007-08 season.
Myers’ history with the Bulls also goes into his playing career: He played for the Bulls for three seasons, from 1986-87 and 1993-95.
