Fred Hoiberg Prefers To Continue Coaching Rather Than Exec Job

Timberwolves fire Tom Thibodeau, may want Fred Hoiberg

Within the last few hours the Timberwolves have fired Thibodeau, who was both the head coach and team president.

Taylor wasn't the one to deliver the news to Thibodeau and hadn't yet spoken to the coach as of Sunday night.

Saunders is now the youngest active coach in the league at 32-years-old and will have a challenging task in bringing the Wolves back to prominence with the second half of the season ahead.

"I'm just taking everything day by day", Saunders said. "It's the overall lack of winning on the road and then losing to, lately, some teams at home that we should've won".

In an official statement, owner, Glen Taylor said, "We would like to thank Tom for his efforts and wish him the best". We've got a good group of people that make things a lot easier... "I guess Taylor did not like the direction things were heading and decided to make a change now".

Hoiberg was sacked by the Chicago Bulls earlier this season.

Kim Jong Un departs Beijing after meetings with Xi Jinping
But progress has since stalled with Pyongyang and Washington - which stations 28,500 troops in South Korea - disagreeing over what that means.

The Timberwolves hired Thibodeau in April 2016.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Fred Hoiberg is among the main candidates for the GM and coach position.

Assistant coach Ryan Saunders will reportedly serve as Minnesota's interim head coach and Scott Layden will work as the team's general manager.

It was Thibodeau's decision to trade a chunk of that young talent for Jimmy Butler, the disgruntled star who all but forced his way out of Minnesota early this season and was traded to Philadelphia.

The Timberwolves will face the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Saunders, the son of the late Flip Saunders, is getting his first shot at a head coaching job - and he noted during his introductory press conference that he did not expect it to come this soon.
