Wolves Find Their New Head Coach. Are The Wild Next?
Last week, the Minnesota Timberwolves found their man in Tom Thibodeau for the franchise's head coach and president of basketball operations. Are the Wild far behind now that their season has come to an end?
Stability is a rare commodity when it comes to the top four professional sports teams in Minnesota. Until last season, only the Twins had a coach/manager in place that was there for more than a few years, as the Vikings, Wolves and now, potentially, the Wild are searching for a new head honcho to lead their respective teams.
Dubbed a "dream job" by most NBA analysts, owner Glen Taylor and the Wolves landed what many called the top candidate for the position in a deep coaching pool that included big names like Jeff Van Gundy, and Scott Brooks.
In this edition of the 'Two-Minute Drill,' Scotty and Frank discuss the coaching changes for the Timberwolves and Wild. Tom Thibodeau is the new T-Wolves head coach and president of basketball operations, while it waits to be seen if John Torchetti will remain coach for the Wild.
