The Minnesota Timberwolves have reportedly fired head coach Tom Thibodeau after the team’s big victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
Minnesota picked up the 108-86 victory, and it’s obviously rare to see a coach get fired immediately after leading his team to such a big win.However, that’s the direction that the Timberwolves have decided to go in, according to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski.
The Timberwolves currently sit at 19-21 on the season, which isn’t exactly a record that screams that a team should fire its coach.
But it’s clear that there have been issues between the two sides for a while now, so his firing may not be all that surprising in the grand scheme of things.
What may be a little interesting is where Minnesota could turn next, with Woj also revealing some information that could land former Chicago Bulls head coach Fred Hoiberg in Minnesota.
