Bulls Name Doug Collins Senior Advisor; Trouble Brewing For Forman?
The Bulls today named former coach Doug Collins Senior Advisor of Basketball Operations. He will report to Senior VP/Basketball Operations John Paxson, with whom Collins has a "close relationship." The addition to the team's front office will "do nothing to quiet speculation on the futures" of GM Gar Forman and coach Fred Hoiberg. In "many ways," Collins will be "tasked to replicate the success Jerry West had as a senior adviser with the Warriors." Collins coached the Bulls from '86-89 (CHICAGOTRIBUNE.com, 9/19).
