The biggest non-secret in the city of Chicago became official this afternoon as the Bulls and GM Gar Forman fired coach Vinny Del Negro after two 41-41 seasons.
Chicago Bulls executive John Paxson says he isn't planning to join fired coach Vinny Del Negro in looking for a new job. Paxson spoke to reporters for the first time since the did-he-choke-did-he-not-choke Del Negro late last month over playing time for the Bulls' Joakim Noah.
Paxson says he accepts the criticism and "people saying I should probably be fired or released." But the executive vice president also says he's not going anywhere and plans to contribute to the Bulls' organization for years to come.
Of course he does, now that his job is safe for another season...
