After being fired by the Chicago Bulls this offseason, head coach Tom Thibodeau was expected to stay away from the NBA scene, at least for a while.

Well, that didn't last too long. 

Thibodeau recently attended Houston Rockets training camp, talking with head coach Kevin McHale and his staff on the sidelines. 

While it's unclear what Thibodeau is doing in Houston, and whether he'll have some sort of role with the team, it's possible that Thibs was just missing the game and wanted to get his fill. Or maybe it's something more than that. 

Either way, it's interesting to see Thibodeau pop up in Houston, even if it's just a one-time thing.
