NEW YORK, Feb. 1, 2011 – The Chicago Bulls’ Tom Thibodeau and the New Orleans Hornets’ Monty Williams today were named the NBA Eastern and Western Conference Coaches of the Month, respectively, for games played in January.

Thibodeau led the Bulls to a 12-4 record on the month, including a 90-79 win over the Eastern Conference-leading Boston Celtics on Jan. 8. The Bulls have gone 11-0 against Central Division opponents, and are the only team in the NBA without a division loss. Chicago’s 44.5 rebounds per game rank second in the NBA, and its 92.0 points allowed per game rank third.

Williams guided the Hornets to a 12-4 mark in January, including a franchise-record 10-game winning streak. New Orleans averaged 7.0 steals last month, and lead the NBA in second chance points allowed (9.71). The Hornets held 9 of 16 opponents under 90 points last month, including the Western Conference-leading San Antonio Spurs in a 75-71 victory on Jan. 22.

Other nominees for Coach of the Month were Boston’s Doc Rivers, Charlotte’s Paul Silas, the Los Angeles Clippers’ Vinny Del Negro, Miami’s Erik Spoelstra, Memphis’ Lionel Hollins, Philadelphia’s Doug Collins and San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich.

Always been a terrific assistant. He was in Houston and in Boston. He was actually kind of why Yao turned into a good defensive player...

I know what you are saying. FYI, Phil Jackson has only won 1 COY the past decade while the past winners have been fired after a couple of years.

We have to turn Thibs into a cult icon.


First things first we need to find a way to him in an all Bulls red suit.

Well deserved. Hard worker that makes sure he as well as his team is prepared before each and every matchup and it shows out there. Has brought alot to this team that we were lacking the past few seasons. Our players and fans are pretty confident in his abilities and he has done well.
