Wolves considering Hoiberg for GM or head coach

Timberwolves fire Tom Thibodeau, may want Fred Hoiberg

"We had just celebrated a good win, so we all went home thinking the day was over", Towns told reporters, as Thibodeau's release came after a victory over the Los Angeles Lakers.

In an official statement, owner, Glen Taylor said, "We would like to thank Tom for his efforts and wish him the best".

It was a shocking development on Sunday when the Minnesota Timberwolves made a decision to fire head coach and Team President Tom Thibodeau despite a 22-point blowout against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Ryan Saunders will serve as the Timberwolves' interim head coach moving forward, while Scott Layden is the team's general manager. "If we want to make the playoffs this year, I have to make a move, '" Hine explained.

"We still have hopes to get into the playoffs and I think with half the season left, let's see if this change will make a difference".

Broncos to name Vic Fangio new coach; Kubiak returning to sideline
This is the first head coaching job for the 60-year-old, but he has more than 30 years of coaching experience in the NFL. Fangio will succeed Vance Joseph, who Broncos GM John Elway fired at the conclusion of a disappointing 6-10 season.

Thibodeau took over in Minnesota in April 2016. Thibodeau, 60, led the Timberwolves to the playoffs previous year for the first time since 2004, but are just 19-21 on the season, including 5-15 on the road.

Hoiberg had an average coaching record of 115-155 across four years in the helm of the Bulls.

Thibodeau entered the season on the hot seat, which is why he was desperately trying to keep Jimmy Butler rather than trade him. Minnesota then tried to fix the problem by shipping Butler to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for young, excellent players in Dario Saric and Robert Covington.

Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Taylor is seriously considering hiring Fred Hoiberg as the Timberwolves new coach or general manager in the future.

The transition won't be easy, especially in the beginning, but that's the National Basketball Association, and the Timberwolves have at least 41 games after Tuesday ahead of them.
