Coach Grandmama? Larry Johnson wants to be Chicago assistant.

Yet, the first image of him is as a grandma in a dress.

Still he has some basketball knowledge and he wants to pass it along. He has emerged as one of the leading candidates for the Chicago Bulls coaching staff, according to the Daily Herald.

Johnson was a player for the Knicks when Tim Thibodeau was on Jeff Van Gundy’s staff there, so they have a relationship. However, he may have a hard time beating out former Suns head man Terry Porter for the job.

Thibodeau let Pete Meyers go recently and is looking for a former player to fill that spot on the bench.

    TOM Thibodeau. Not Tim.
    C’mon guys, this is a daily occurrence. Who’s proofing your work?
