The Minnesota Timberwolves are interested in interviewing Mark Jackson for their head coaching vacancy, reports ESPN’s Chris Broussard.
The Timberwolves may schedule an interview for Wednesday after the team meets with former Chicago Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau and former Knicks coach and current ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy.
Jackson has also done some television work since being fired by the Golden State Warriors in 2014. In three seasons with the Warriors, he finished with a 121–109 record with two trips to the playoffs.
The head coaching search is underway after Minnesota decided not to retain interim coach Sam Mitchell, who took over after the death of Flip Saunders in October 2015.
