Loenser, meanwhile, is an inspirational story.
Born with a partial left arm, the former Bulls video coordinator has never made excuses and instead injects humor into the organization.
"I'm lucky; I'm fortunate," Loenser told CBS Chicago last fall. "I have two great legs, one arm that I can do anything with and I just make the most of the tools that have been given to me.
"Instead of moping or pointing a finger and making excuses. I've never been that kind of person. I've always had the strength in my mind to not play like a one-armed player, not be a one-armed basketball player. Just to be Nate."
Loenser assisted Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg during practices last season, focusing on opponent scouting and updating the team's playbooks.
Prior to his work at the Bulls, Loenser was with Iowa State as director of player development and also spent six seasons as an assistant coach with Southern Mississippi.
"Nate's work ethic and knowledge of our player development program make him a great fit to be the head coach of the Windy City Bulls," Chicago GM Gar Forman said in a statement. "He has been involved in every aspect of basketball operations at both the collegiate and professional levels. The timing is perfect to apply his experience and skills in this new role."
The Windy City Bulls' season tips off in November.
