The Chicago Bulls signed head coach Billy Donovan to an extension during the offseason, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Here’s what you need to know about the deal:

  • Donovan, who last season guided the Bulls to the playoffs for the first time in four years, had two years remaining on his original four-year contract and is now under contract for several more years.
  • The new deal was signed prior to the season.
  • The Bulls have an 86-88 record under Donovan.

Donovan became the head coach of the Bulls in 2020, following five seasons at the helm of the Oklahoma City Thunder. His teams have won 57.8% of their games with him as a head coach, and he recently led the Bulls back to the postseason with a surprising performance in the ’21-’22 campaign.

The Bulls have gone through a lot this season, but find themselves just two games below .500. Billy Donovan already had two years left on his four-year contract and now will have several more.
