Wolves considering Hoiberg for GM or head coach

Wolves considering Hoiberg for GM or head coach”

"Assistant coach Ryan Saunders will take over as interim coach for the rest of the season, while Scott Layden will remain Minnesota's general manager". The Timberwolves improved to 19-21 this season with a 108-86 win over the Lakers earlier in the day.

Taylor also discussed the move in an interview with the Star Tribune.

And Saunders, the son of the late Timberwolves coaching legend Flip Saunders, will be the leader players look to make that run happen.

"My passion is in coaching and I'm looking forward to what lies ahead", said Hoiberg. I think he's prepared a long time for this moment.

"I am not prioritizing one over the other in respect to the National Basketball Association and college", Hoiberg said. We're riding with him, and that's as simple as I can put it. "It's just not", Rose said.

Thibodeau, who was one game short of the exact midpoint of his five-year contract that's worth about $40 million, was frequently booed during introductions at Target Center, where the Wolves are next-to-last in the league with an average of 14,765 tickets distributed per game. "We just lost against a bunch of teams that we're a better team".

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Fred Hoiberg is among the main candidates for the GM and coach position. Hoiberg was recently fired by the Chicago Bulls and was in Minnesota as a player from 2003-05.

Thibodeau took over in Minnesota in April 2016. Thibodeau, 60, led the Timberwolves to the playoffs a year ago for the first time since 2004, but are just 19-21 on the season, including 5-15 on the road.

Thibodeau was also the head coach of the Bulls from 2011-15, where he compiled a 255-139 record.

The Timberwolves will play their first game without Thibodeau tonight at 8 P.M. EST against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Thibodeau entered the season on the hot seat, which is why he was desperately trying to keep Jimmy Butler rather than trade him.
