Fred Hoiberg: ‘My passion is in coaching’ not front office job

Saunders and Minnesota are at the halfway point of their season, sitting just outside the playoffs and two games back of the Los Angeles Lakers for the eighth seed. "I guess Taylor did not like the direction things were heading and decided to make a change now". For the time being, assistant coach Ryan Saunders will take over for Thibodeau on an interim basis.

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. "I jinxed that badly", Towns said Monday, after the Timberwolves (19-21) gathered for their first practice without Thibodeau's familiar, gravelly voice leading the drills. "We just lost against a bunch of teams that we're a better team".

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.

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

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.

Minnesota has fired Thibodeau, who was also the team's president of basketball operations, the team announced Sunday.

The Timberwolves will face the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Tuesday. After a contentious battle with star guard Jimmy Butler who demanded a trade, the Timberwolves never recovered from their lack of team chemistry.

Hoiberg - whose name has come up in relation to the UCLA coaching search - told Zach Lowe of ESPN what he wants to do is coach, not work in a front office again.
