A Look at the Chicago Bulls 2009………. Mike Wilhelm

Last season was Mike Wilhelm’s first season as an assistant coach with the Chicago Bulls. It was his seventh season with the Bulls and they promoted him to an assist coach because they liked him as a scout and want to promote personnel they like within the organization. He will entering his second season as an assistant coach, eighth season with the Bulls, and 14th season in the NBA. Prior to becoming a full assistant coach with the Bulls he was an assistant coach/advance scout with the team for his first six years in the Bulls organization. Before joining the Bulls he spent the 2001-02 season as an advance scout for the Denver Nuggets. Mike Wilhelm started his NBA career with the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 1993-94 season as the team’s assistant video coordinator. He became the head video coordinator in 1996 and had that position until 1999 when he became the team’s advance scout. He has had coaching experience as a assistant coach for the WNBA’s Cleveland Rockers from 1997 through the 1999 season. His coaching career began in Sweden’s professional league where he coached the Sundsvall Dragons for two seasons from 1990 to 1992. Mike Wilhelm has experience as a video coordinator and looking at tape, being an advance scout, and will hopefully help the Bulls more this upcoming season.
