Report: Flip Saunders to Return to Bench for Timberwolves

One week after a former Skyforce coach turned down a chance to coach the Minnesota Timberwolves, another former Sioux Falls coach will take over the team.

According to ESPN.com, T-Wolves president and part-owner Flip Saunders has decided to return to the bench and coach the team himself.  He made the decision after being turned down by Memphis Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger and interviewing a number of other coaches.

This will be Saunders’ second stint as coach in Minnesota.  He guided the team from 1995-2005, taking the Wolves to eight playoff appearances, including the Western Conference finals in 2004.

The season prior to becoming the head coach in Minnesota, Saunders was the head coach of the Skyforce during the 1994-95 season.

Saunders joined the Wolves’ front office last year and will continue in his role as team president.
