Report: Bulls, Billy Donovan inked contract extension during offseason




 

According to Shams Charania of the Athletic, the Chicago Bulls and head coach Billy Donovan agreed to terms on a contract extension at some point prior to the '22-23 season. Donovan, who already had two years left on his four-year deal, will now remain under contract with Chicago for several years more.

Donovan joined the Bulls in September of 2020 following five seasons as the head coach of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Donovan has won 57.8% of his games as a coach in the NBA, and more recently led Chicago back to the postseason following a surprising '21-22 campaign.

The Bulls are 9-11 at the time of this writing, but have dealt with injuries and other challenges early this season. Donovan has thus far kept his cool despite some adversity in Chicago.
