 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Minnesota Timberwolves have fired coach Randy Wittman, two days after a 23-point loss at home to the Los Angeles Clippers. General manager Kevin McHale will take over as coach.
The change was confirmed Monday by a person familiar with the decision. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because an announcement was not yet made.
The team is off to a 4-15 start. McHale picked Wittman to preside over the team's rebuilding following the trade of Kevin Garnett.
Wittman went 22-60 in his only full season.
