Report: McHale won’t return as T-Wolves’ coach
MINNEAPOLIS – Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love says on Twitter that Kevin McHale will not return as coach next season.
In an update posted early Wednesday, Love tweeted, “Today is a sad day … Kevin McHale will NOT be back as head coach this season.”
Upon seeing the posting, a person in the league was told McHale sent a text message to Love indicating he was not coming back. The person requested anonymity because no official announcement has been made.
New team president David Kahn and two Timberwolves spokesmen did not immediately return messages left by The Associated Press.
During a breakfast with media members on Monday, Kahn said no decision had been made and he hoped to meet with McHale again this week.
