So sad. What a day... http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/chi-27-johnny-kerr-bulls-chicagojan12,0,595890.story Ex-Bulls broadcaster, coach Johnny "Red" Kerr dies THE ASSOCIATED PRESS CHICAGO -- Johnny "Red" Kerr, the former Chicago Bulls coach who spent more than three decades as a broadcaster for the team, has died. He was 76. Bulls spokesman Tim Hallam says Kerr died Thursday at his home. He had been battling prostate cancer. Kerr's death is a double blow for the Bulls, following the death also Thursday of Norm Van Lier, one of the most popular players in Bulls history. Van Lier was 61. The Bulls unveiled a statue of Kerr at the United Center during an emotional ceremony earlier this month that included taped messages from President Obama and commissioner David Stern and speeches from Scottie Pippen and Michael Jordan. Kerr coached the Bulls to the playoffs in their inaugural 1966-67 season and spent more than 30 years calling their games.
