The Chicago Bulls today announced that Head Coach Tim Floyd has resigned.

Floyd, in his fourth year with the club, said: “I feel it is best for me and my family that I leave the Bulls now. I want to thank the players for the effort they’ve given me. Chicago is a great city and its basketball fans will always hold a special place in my heart.”

Bulls Executive Vice President, Basketball Operations Jerry Krause said: “Tim, Jerry Reinsdorf and myself had several conversations over the weekend during which Tim expressed a desire to resign. We both sincerely regret but respect his decision.

We want to express our appreciation for his dedication and hard work. Tim has been a very important part in setting the rebuilding direction of the club. That direction will continue. Our goal to again contend for a championship remains the same.”

Assistant coach Bill Berry has been named Interim Head Coach.
