Chicago’s Thibodeau named 2010-11 NBA Coach of the Year | NBA.com

NEW YORK — Chicago’s Tom Thibodeau is the recipient of the Red Auerbach Trophy as the 2010-11 NBA Coach of the Year, the NBA announced today.

Thibodeau totaled 475 points, including 76 first-place votes, from a panel of 119 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. Coaches were awarded five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote and one point for each third-place vote.

In his first season as a head coach, Thibodeau guided Chicago to a league-best 62-20 (.756) record, the most wins for a Chicago team since the 1997-98 Bulls also won 62. The 62 wins represented a 21-game improvement from the Bulls’ 41-41 campaign in 2009-10, marking the third-best single-season turnaround in franchise history. Chicago was one of two teams, along with Boston, in the NBA this year that did not lose more than two games in a row.
