Bulls coach Thibodeau leases in Highland Park

ELITE STREET | By Bob Goldsborough | New Chicago Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has leased a three-bedroom row home just west of downtown Highland Park for $4,900 a month.

In June, Thibodeau, 52, inked a three-year, $6.5 million deal with the Bulls. On July 23, Thibodeau signed another contract to rent the eight-room home, which was built in 2007. It has three full baths, two half baths, one fireplace, a gourmet kitchen, a study, an elevator and a finished lower level.

Roberta Miller of Baird & Warner, who represented Thibodeau, confirmed that he rented the row home but declined to comment beyond calling Thibodeau “just a great person who is going to have a great season.”

Listing agent Jacquelyn Muller of Prudential Rubloff, who also owns the home, paid $865,000 for it in 2008.

Located near the Bulls’ Deerfield practice facility, Highland Park has become recent Bulls head coaches’ community of choice. Thibodeau’s predecessor Vinny Del Negro, who coached from 2008 until 2010, still owns the four-bedroom Highland Park house that he bought in 2008 for $1.2 million and briefly listed last fall for $1.325 million.

And Scott Skiles, the Bulls’ coach from 2003 until 2007, paid $1.425 million in 2005 for a 5,596-square-foot Highland Park house that he sold at a loss in 2008 for $1.3265 million.
