Kevin McHale Gone Bye-Bye

About damned time... t ========================================= McHale Ousted as Coach, 15 Year Reign Over by Scott Henneboehle, Wolves Watch (MVN) The day that has been a long time coming for many Wolves fans has finally arrived - the franchise has decided to cut ties with the embattled coach and former VP of Basketball Ops. When Glen Taylor was interviewing GMs, the stipulation was that McHale would hold the decision-making power when it came to his future as head coach. After being turned down by a number of candidates, it seems that Taylor's position on McHale's job security took a back seat to getting a GM in place. Kahn said in his press conference that Taylor had basically given him the final say on whether McHale stays or goes. From the quotes I've heard, it sounds like McHale did in fact have some desire to coach next year and beyond. McHale made it sound like at least some of the players were upset to see him go, but so far I haven't seen any player specifically say anything to that end. Kahn also made it clear at the press conference that he will not make a coaching decision until after the draft. He said that, as of now, he has not actively pursued/looked into any other candidates for the Timberwolves head coach. He stressed that whoever comes in to take over for McHale will need to understand the circumstances of the team, particularly that they are young and inexperienced, and be willing to adjust their coaching to meet the needs presented by this situation. * * *
