Boston Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau interviewed for a head coaching position with the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday, the Boston Globe [1] reported. He is one of six candidates who have met with the organization.

On Friday, Sixers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski issued a statement saying,  “As such, due to the number of candidates still involved in the process, there is no timetable set for when this very important decision regarding the future direction of the franchise will be made.”

The 76ers will continue interviews and conduct further research and background checks on their prospects. Stefanski noted, “As I have said before, the qualities I am looking for in our next head coach include excellent communication and leadership skills, will stress the importance of accountability while also developing our players and will be a strong tactician.”

The Globe also reported [2] the Sacramento Kings have been granted permission to interview Thibodeau.
