Fred Hoiberg is not an immediate candidate for the head coach or president's job of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Hoiberg was fired earlier this season by the Chicago Bulls and is known as a favorite of Glen Taylor.

Ryan Saunders will get a chance to win the permanent job as head coach. Scott Layden will also be given the opportunity to remain as general manager.

The Wolves may consider hiring an assistant coach with previous head coaching experience to help Saunders.
