Joakim Noah opened up about the decision of the Chicago Bulls to hire Billy Donovan as the new head coach.

Noah, who won two NCAA titles at the University of Florida with Donovan, is extremely happy for his former coach taking over the Bulls.

“I’m happy for the Bulls organization. They’re getting a great coach, someone who is an unbelievable motivator and someone who is family to me,” Noah told K.C. Johnson of NBC Sports Chicago.

Donovan coached the Oklahoma City Thunder from 2015 to 2020 and went 243-157 in the regular season and 18-23 in the postseason.

Noah is an unrestricted free agent and Donovan may consider signing him this offseason.
