Quin Snyder Interviews For Minnesota Timberwolves Coaching Job, According To Report

The Minnesota Timberwolves still haven't officially fired Kurt Rambis as their head coach, but speculation on his successor has now turned to former Missouri coach Quin Snyder, who has reportedly interviewed for the position with David Kahn, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Philadelphia 76ers assistant Quin Snyder has been interviewed by Kahn, an NBA coach with knowledge of the situation said Monday night.

Snyder, 45, just completed his first season as an assistant to Sixers coach Doug Collins and has been a head coach at Missouri and for the Austin Toros in the NBA Development League from 2007-10.

Snyder hasn't been a household name since his stormy tenure at Missouri, which included postseason appearances every year, but no finishes higher than fifth in the Big 12. But his three years with the Toros were very successful, as he lead Austin to the NBA D-League Finals once and followed that with consecutive NBDL Semifinals appearances. The Toros won more than 30 games in each season under Snyder.

Snyder, however, is about as off-the-wall an idea for the next Timberwolves coach as Mike Krzyzewski was. So David Kahn is clearly in full control of this coaching search.
