T-Wolves pick Rambis as new head coach

It appears that the Minnesota Timberwolves’ search for a head coach is finally over.

Per ESPN…

Long considered a potential heir apparent to Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson, Rambis was lured away from Jackson’s staff by a four-year deal believed to be worth in excess of $8 million.

Wolves owner Glen Taylor confirmed ESPN.com’s report in an interview with the St. Paul Pioneer Press late Saturday, telling the newspaper that he expects Rambis to formally sign the contract Monday.

“Kurt, with his experience playing and coaching for a winning organization and working under people like Pat Riley, will bring a lot to our organization,” Taylor told the Pioneer Press. “In meeting with him and talking to him, I know he’s very excited about having an opportunity to help build his own team.”

This looks like a good hire by the T-Wolves. Rambis has spent several seasons learning from Phil Jackson, who is one of the very best coaches in the history of the league.
