The Minnesota Timberwolves looked like they might decide on the successor to former head coach Kurt Rambis’s throne before the week’s end. As friend of the blog Rebecca Black might say, however, It’s Friday, Friday, we gotta get down on Friday … and there’s still no announcement regarding the coaching search.
Jerry Zgoda tweeted earlier this week to retract his earlier statement, updating that the coaching search won’t end until next week — at least. Zgoda followed that up by saying that he’s been told the team has no timetable despite an earlier report saying that at least some of the prospective coaches were expecting an answer sometime this week.
As a reminder, the known candidates are Don Nelson, Larry Brown, Mike Woodson, Sam Mitchell, Bernie Bickerstaff, Terry Porter and maybe Rick Adelman. Adelman’s a maybe because he didn’t, to anybody’s knowledge, meet with David Kahn in person and rather only talked on the phone about the position.
Either way, whoever had “it’ll be drawn out as long as Rambis’s firing process took” in the How Long Will It Take For The Wolves To Find A New Head Coach office pool is probably owed some money.
