Year-Round News & Updates on the Minnesota Timberwolves
Mike Woodson (the former Atlanta Hawks head coach) is currently a candidate that has interviewed for the TWolves head coaching job. However, that's not the only offer he's received this summer.
Woodson of course was the Hawks coach from 2004-2010, he was fired a year ago and replaced by Larry Drew.
This summer, he was a candidate for the Detroit Pistons job (one of the final two candidates)--the job inevitably ended up going to former Nets coach Lawrence Frank who received a four-year deal with the team. Then of course, he's a strong candidate for the TWolves position--Kahn likely won't choose him, however with his defensive mindset and knowledge of the game, he'd be a fit for these young Wolves. As a defensive dynamo--he's also garnered some interest from teams looking for a D-coordinator: the Boston Celtics (who are looking to replace lead assistant--Lawrence Frank (Larry Brown is also being considered) and the New York Knicks, looking for a defensive assistant to complement Mike D'Antoni).
Former TWolves head coach Randy Wittman has reportedly put in a good word with owner Glen Taylor about Mike Woodson as their possible next head coach. Wittman has known Woodson since 1979. An Woodson had reportedly impressed more than a few in his short time (interview) here.
If Mike Woodson doesn't get the TWolves head coaching gig, or if he doesn't even want it, there is plenty of interest around the League for a guy with a great defensive approach to the game.
