Minnesota Timberwolves to interview David Joerger for head coach role

Published Add your comment

The Minnesota Timberwolves today received permission from the Memphis Grizzlies to interview David Joerger for their vacant head coaching position, reports the Star Tribune.

Joerger has only been in charge of Memphis since the beginning of this season, having spent the previous six years as an assistant at the franchise.

But the Grizzlies are currently undergoing somewhat of a re-building process under Robert pera, with the owner having fired both the CEO and assistant GM in recent days.

According to reports the Timberwolves will look interview Joerger sooner rather than later, with a potential meeting at week's end being mooted.

It is believed that the coach, who led the Grizzlies to a 50-plus win season and postseason action in 2013-14, wants out of the unstable Memphis situation and would welcome the opportunity to work with the Timberwolves.

The news comes at a difficult time for the T'Wolves themselves, with star man Kevin Love have recently angled for a move away from the franchise in search of success.
