Just 33 years old, Ryan Saunders is the youngest head coach in the NBA.
This comes as Saunders held the title as youngest interim head coach in the NBA.
The Timberwolves have removed the “interim” tag from his title and announced that he is now the head coach of the franchise. Saunders finished last season in charge following the firing of Tom Thibodeau in January.
A press conference to formally introduce Saunders in his new job begins at 10 a.m. Tuesday and is aired live on WCCO radio.
“I look forward to building on what we established last season in terms of instilling a positive environment for our players to grow on and off the court. I’m excited to collaborate with Gersson and our staff to build a winning team that we can all be proud of.”
