Tom Thibodeau

President of Basketball Operations/Head Coach

Minnesota Timberwolves




Tom Thibodeau (“Thibs”) is the chief decider (after Glen Taylor) for the region’s long-suffering NBA franchise. His first year on the job produced rather disappointing results, prompting questions about his misanthropic demeanor, roster choices and heavy use of players. After a summer that produced a wholesale roster renewal, Thibs is going to be expected to produce a playoff-caliber team with playoff-caliber results, lest he be asked to return to the ranks of former coaches.
