 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Minnesota Timberwolves hired John-Blair Bickerstaff as an assistant coach Tuesday.
Bickerstaff spent the past three seasons as an assistant with Charlotte under his father, Bernie Bickerstaff, who had served as general manager and head coach of the Bobcats.
John-Blair Bickerstaff, who was the youngest coach in the NBA when he was hired at age 26 in 2005 by Charlotte, was a color analyst on Timberwolves radio broadcasts during the 2003-04 season. He finished his college career by playing two seasons for the University of Minnesota, from 1999-2001, and served as the director of operations for the Gophers' basketball program after he graduated.
He had one public blemish while with the Bobcats. Last November, he was suspended two games without pay by the NBA for driving while impaired.
