Kurt Rambis Fired As Minnesota Timberwolves Head Coach, According To Report

In a move that has appeared inevitable for weeks now, the Minnesota Timberwolves have fired head coach Kurt Rambis, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Rambis has been rumored to be fired since the Timberwolves completed yet another dismal season, but general manager David Kahn had not made the move. It appears he has now, and a formal announcement is expected shortly.

Rambis had a dismal 32-132 record in two seasons as the Timberwolves' coach. He was handicapped by a poor roster, but he also couldn't get his players to learn the Triangle offense. His teams also struggled down the stretch both years instead of improving as the season progressed. He had come aboard in 2009 after being a longtime assistant for Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers. His only previous head coaching experience was a brief stay as the Lakers' coach during the 1999 lockout-shortened season.
