Gibson undergoes surgery, Iowa State assistant to join Bulls
The press release also stated that Gibson's surgery went as planned and the rehabilitation process is already underway. He is expected to be out about four months.
The Chicago Tribune's K.C. Johnson has reported that the surgery has come a month after the season's end because it's Gibson first surgery and that his ankle needed to "calm down."
Why 1 month wait for Gibson surgery?His 1st surgery so sought opinions/wanted to feel comfortable. Ankle also had to calm down after season— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) June 19, 2015
Gibson surgery involved fixing badly damaged ligament and cleaning out bone spurs. Prognosis is nothing chronic and ankle should feel new.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) June 19, 2015
Travis Hines of the Ames Tribune has reported that Charlie Henry resigned from his Iowa State men's basketball assistant coaching position to rejoin Fred Hoiberg on the Bulls' coaching staff.
Henry was a graduate assistant for Iowa State in 2012 and became the director of player development in 2013. The following year, Henry was promoted to a full-time assistant.
Hoiberg, however, isn't the only one on the Bulls' coaching staff who is familiar with Henry.
Henry was also a graduate manager for Utah in 2010-11 — the same time recently-hired Bulls associate head coach Jim Boylen was Utah's head coach. He also worked with Boylen for the 2011-12 season when the two were involved with the Indiana Pacers: Henry acted as a video intern while Boylen was an assistant.
The Bulls have yet to make the hiring official, but Henry spoke positively of the situation.
“It’s going to be just a really good fit for everyone,” Henry said. “I’m definitely really excited to be back with coach Boylen again, have the chance to see (Hoiberg and Boylen) work together. I think it’s going to be great.”
