Wizards Interim Head Coach: This Isn’t Brain Science

Wednesday January 25th, 2012

Newly introduced Washington Wizards interim head coach, Randy Wittman, said the plan of turning around the team’s 2-15 record won’t be complicated.

"This isn't brain surgery," Wittman told CSN Washington. "We need to simplify things."

"I would not have taken this job if I didn't think this team could do better than what it is showing," he added.

Wittman has three previous stints in the NBA as a head coach. From 1999-2001 he served as the head coach of the Cavaliers posting a 62-102 record. In three years as the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves from 2006-2008, he posted a 38-105 record.
