Coach Tom Thibodeau will be presented with the NBA coach of the year award Sunday afternoon, according to multiple sources familiar with the situation.

The first-year head coach led the Bulls to a 62-20 regular season and the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference.

"Thibs, man, [he’s the] coach of the year to me," Derrick Rose said late in the regular season. "Where he’s just been on us, holding everybody accountable every time we step on the court. With him, we’ve just been ballin’. He’s making sure we go over everything. And our preparation for the game is important."

The MVP award is expected to be announced Tuesday. If Rose wins as expected, Rose and Thibodeau would be the 12th duo to win both awards.

The news was first confirmed by the Chicago Tribune.
