Timberwolves 'rallying around' new head coach Ryan Saunders

Timberwolves 'rallying around' new head coach Ryan Saunders

News came out late Sunday that the Timberwolves were firing Thibodeau, who was in the middle of his third season as the team's head coach and president.

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 just lost against a bunch of teams that we're a better team".

In an official statement, owner, Glen Taylor said, "We would like to thank Tom for his efforts and wish him the best". "I think everyone knows this is special... for a number of reasons". Ryan Saunders will be stepping in as coach on an interim basis.

After a strenuous offseason and hard start to the regular season, the Minnesota Timberwolves have relived Tom Thibodeau of his coaching duties after three seasons. Most people linked Thibodeau and Layden after they were brought in together in the summer of 2016, but Taylor said he held Thibodeau accountable as the coach.

"I said let's let it go and see how things worked", Taylor said.

Former Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg is a "serious" candidate to replace Thibodeau in Minnesota, according to ESPN.

Hoiberg worked in Minnesota's front office following his retirement as an National Basketball Association player, and Wolves owner Glen Taylor has a well-known affection for him, according to league sources. It's already been a whirlwind of a season thanks to Sunday's firing of Thibodeau and the Jimmy Butler trade on November 12.

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

The babyface Saunders is set to make his National Basketball Association head coaching debut tonight when the Timberwolves head south to take on Paul George, Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder.
