Bernie Bickerstaff To Interview For Timberwolves' Coaching Job, According To Report

The third person to interview for the vacant Minnesota Timberwolves coaching position will be Portland Trail Blazers assistant Bernie Bickerstaff, according to CSN Northwest's Dwight Jaynes. Bickerstaff will interview on Friday and will follow former Bucks and Suns coach Terry Porter and former Hawks coach Mike Woodson.

Bickerstaff is a long-time NBA coach that has a lot of experience as the head man. He has coached for the Seattle Supersonics, Denver Nuggets, Washington Bullets and Charlotte Bobcats. For his career, he holds a 414-512 record. He returned to Portland last season to be an assistant under Nate McMillan, whom he once coached early in his career.

Like Woodson and Porter, Bickerstaff is known as a half-court oriented coach. This pokes a hole in general manager David Kahn's stated goal to find a coach willing to teach an up-tempo style.
