Jim Boylen fully expects he will return as head coach of the Chicago Bulls next season.

Boylen's one concern, however, is that he wants an opportunity to sit down with Arturas Karnisovas to discuss his year-and-a-half as head coach before they make a final decision.

Boylen's biggest supporters are believed to be Jerry Reinsdorf and Michael Reinsdorf.

Boylen has two seasons remaining on his contract, though it is considered a team-friendly deal.

Boylen became head coach of the Bulls following the dismissal of Fred Hoiberg.
