Kevin McHale Leaves Front Office to Become Coach of Wolves

The Timberwolves fired head coach Randy Wittman this morning and replaced him with Vice President of Basketball Operations Kevin McHale, but the big news out of Target Center is that McHale will relinquish his front-office duties to concentrate on coaching.

Owner Glen Taylor and McHale announced the changes at a press conference today.

 It is not yet known if  assistant general manager Fred Hoiberg, who was being groomed as McHale’s successor, will take over the team’s basketball operations on a permanent basis.
