The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced that the NBA club has relieved head coach Dwane Casey of his coaching duties and responsibilities. Timberwolves Assistant Coach Randy Wittman will take over the head coaching duties for the remainder of the 2006-07 NBA season.
"We started the season with certain goals and expectations that have not been met,” said Vice President of Basketball Operations Kevin McHale. “We've struggled with being consistent throughout the year and ultimately that's the head coach's responsibility. I want to thank Dwane for his hard work and commitment to this team, and wish him well."
