Flip Saunders to coach the Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS (AP)--TWO PEOPLE WITH KNOWLEDGE OF THE DECISION TELL THE ASSOCIATED PRESS THAT FLIP SAUNDERS IS MOVING OUT OF THE FRONT OFFICE TO COACH THE MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES. SAUNDERS WAS HIRED LAST SEASON AS PRESIDENT OF BASKETBALL OPERATIONS. AFTER THE TEAM'S SEARCH TO REPLACE THE RETIRED RICK ADELMAN WAS SNAGGED BY KEVIN LOVE'S UNCERTAIN FUTURE IN MINNESOTA, IT WAS DETERMINED THAT SAUNDERS SHOULD STEP IN TO COACH THE TEAM. THE PEOPLE REQUESTED ANONYMITY THURSDAY BECAUSE THE TEAM HAS NOT OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCED THE MOVE. SAUNDERS COACHED THE TEAM FROM 1995-2005. HE HAS TAKEN THE TIMBERWOLVES TO THE ONLY EIGHT PLAYOFF APPEARANCES IN FRANCHISE HISTORY, INCLUDING THE WESTERN CONFERENCE FINALS IN 2004. SAUNDERS WILL CONTINUE TO WORK WITH GM MILT NEWTON IN THE FRONT OFFICE WHILE HANDLING COACHING DUTIES.
