The Philadelphia 76ers [1] have passed on Celtics [2] assistant coach Tom Thibodeau [3] and hired former Washington Wizards [4] head coach Eddie Jordan to fill their head coaching position, according to ESPN.com [5]. Despite expressing an early interest in Thibodeau, the Sixers only interviewed Jordan and Dallas Mavericks [6] assistant coach Dwane Casey twice. Thibodeau is set to interview with the Sacramento Kings [7] for their head coach vacancy. He helped transform the Celtics into one of the best defensive teams in the NBA.
