Dwane Casey, Clem Haskins
With Kevin McHale returning to the front office, Casey took over as coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves. A veteran NBA assistant who played his college ball at Kentucky, Casey had a long friendship with former Gopher Coach Haskins, who was making his first Dunkers appearance since being dismissed as Gopher coach. Haskins said he deeply regretted the way things ended in Minnesota, but that he greatly enjoyed his years here. Casey built a record of 53-69 over the next year and a half and was fired in favor of Randy Wittman midway through the 2006 season.
