The Philadelphia 76ers have passed on Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau and hired former Washington Wizards head coach Eddie Jordan to fill their head coaching position, according to ESPN.com. Despite expressing an early interest in Thibodeau, the Sixers only interviewed Jordan and Dallas Mavericks assistant coach Dwane Casey twice. Thibodeau is set to interview with the Sacramento Kings for their head coach vacancy. He helped transform the Celtics into one of the best defensive teams in the NBA.
