Larry Johnson was interested in joining the Bulls as an assistant, but it doesn't sound like it's going to happen.

"(Johnson) was interested but, at this point, I don't think it's a possibility any longer," Thibodeau said on WMVP-AM radio Friday. We're not sure why Thibodeau's not interested in hiring Grandmama, but the search is still on for Pete Myers' replacement.
