Well you all wanted it, and you got it. Although David Kahn has not announced it, you can actually look at the breaking news via Kevin Love's Twitter page.

Kevin McHale was the one that traded Roy for Foye, traded Garnett for Jefferson and company, and has really been a horrible GM for the last few years.

But up until January, he was more than an exceptional coach, and in January the team went 10-3.

All the players love playing for him, and although Kevin does not have an actual playbook, the fact that the Wolves are getting a new coach is somewhat now appealing to me.

The Wolves need more of an motivator, and I feel that McHale was not a guy to do that. I often see him at the games being too soft, and he does not show any discipline, but who can when the Wolves play well for you.

When the Wolves get a new coach, I hope it's a guy like Doc Rivers, who pushes his players to their limits, and gives credit when it's due. I just hope we don't get another Randy Wittman, a guy who focuses on his self-benefit coaching, and not on the players' ability.
