The former Bulls coach has been named a senior advisor of basketball operations and will report to executive vice president of basketball operations John Paxson, the team announced in a news release on Tuesday.
Collins will assist Paxson, general manager Gar Forman and coach Fred Hoiberg and their staffs.
“People who know me know the respect that I have for Jerry, Michael, and the Chicago Bulls organization. I am looking forward to getting started and helping everyone,” Collins said in a news release. “To be able to stay involved in the NBA and work with John, Gar, Fred and their respective staffs, while not having to leave my family and continuing to live in one of the greatest cities in the world – the fit couldn’t be any better for me at this point in my life.”
