Tom Thibodeau Fired By Minnesota Timberwolves

The Minnesota Timberwolves fired head coach and team president Tom Thibodeau on Sunday, this after less than three years on the job.

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

The Athletic first reported that Thibodeau, who was also the president of basketball operations with full authority over the roster, had been let go.

As for the recent pair of wins, Taylor noted the Wolves were expected to win those games, and that the decision wasn't based on just one performance.

"We've got so much talent on this team". Overall with the Timberwolves, he performed quite well finishing 19-21 this season and 97-107 overall.

Adding to concerns of lawmakers, federal workers still on the job apparently will miss this week's paychecks. Presidents have been using Oval Office addresses to make big announcements for decades.

Assistant coach Ryan Saunders will reportedly serve as Minnesota's interim head coach and Scott Layden will work as the team's general manager. "I'm coaching on the fly at the moment and I'm putting a lot of thoughts to paper now and really trying to organize those things". Thibodeau's trademark hard nose coaching style and tendency to play starters extensive minutes eroded his relationship with both players and Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor.

"The results are that I don't think we should've lost against Phoenix or Detroit or New Orleans or Atlanta", Taylor said.

Former Chicago Bulls and Iowa State Cyclones head coach Fred Hoiberg told ESPN on Monday that he'd prefer to stay in coaching - at either the college or pro level - rather than return to an National Basketball Association front-office role.

Tom Thibodeau who was with the Chicago Bulls for a while, took over duties in Minnesota before the 2016 season began.

"You really don't get much sleep, getting thrown into this thing", Saunders said Tuesday morning, January 8, at the Timberwolves' shootaround.
