Reports: Hoiberg to Bulls to be announced Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
AMES (KWWL) -

Multiple online and published reports say Iowa State basketball coach Fred Hoiberg will be named head coach of the NBA's Chicago Bulls as early as Tuesday.

The Des Moines Register reports the announcement could come as soon as Tuesday, but could wait as late as Wednesday.

The Orlando Sentinel reports Hoiberg expressed interest in the Orlando Magic head coaching position before the Magic hired Scott Skiles.

The Bulls fired Tom Thibodeau last week, opening the position for Hoiberg.

ESPN reports the Bulls are "quietly confident" Hoiberg will accept an offer to become their head coach.

Hoiberg played for the Bulls for 4 of his 10 years in the NBA.
