A Look at the Chicago Bulls 2009……….Pete Myers

Pete Myers played in the NBA from 1986 to 1991 and from 1993 to 1998. He was drafted in 1986 by the Chicago Bulls in the 6th round (120th overall pick). He started his Bulls career in the 1986-1987 season and came back to the Bulls in 1993 after the retirement of Michael Jordan and replaced him as the starting shooting guard. He played with seven teams in his NBA playing career.

Pete Myers joined the Bulls coaching staff on December 28, 2001. He became the interim head coach for two games when Bill Cartwright was fired in 2003. When the Bulls hired Scott Skiles Myers went back to his regular duties as an assistant coach. When Skiles was fired in 2007, Myers was named the interim head coach again for one game before Jim Boylan became the head coach for the rest of the season. Pete Meyers has been an assistant coach for the Bulls for several years now and he never seems to get much respect. The Bulls just seem to keep bringing in more assistant coaches ahead of him on the food chain.
