On January 4, 2021, the south gymnasium at Cuyahoga How talls High School in Cuyahoga How talls, Ohio was renamed in Flip’s honor. The event was attended by Flip’s wife Debbie Saunders, Flip’s son and current Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Ryan Saunders, other members of the Saunders’ family as well as by the entire 2021 Minnesota Timberwolves basketball team.
On August 11, 2015, Saunders announced he had been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma, for which he was undergoing treatment. Saunders planned to remain the Timberwolves’ head coach and president. However, after Saunders was hospitalized for more than a month following complications in September, team owner Glen Taylor announced that Saunders would miss the next season. Saunders died on October 25, 2015 at the age of 60. On February 15, 2018, the Timberwolves held a “Flip Saunders Night” during which a permanent banner was unveiled in the Target Center honoring Saunders. A little over three years after his death, Flip’s son Ryan Saunders took over as the Timberwolves’ head coach following the firing of Tom Thibodeau.
On June 6, 2014, Saunders was named the head coach of the Minnesota Timberwolves, returning to the franchise for a second stint. During his second stint with the Timberwolves, Saunders was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. During his recovery, he delegated his coaching position to assistant coach and former NBA Coach of the Year winner Sam Mitchell. His 427 wins during parts of ten seasons in two stints are far and away the most in franchise history and, until the 2017–18 season, he was the only coach to lead the Timberwolves to a winning season or coach a playoff game.
Saunders began his coaching career at Golden Valley Lutheran College where he compiled a 92–13 record, including a perfect 56–0 mark at home, in four seasons. In 1981, he became an assistant coach at his alma mater, Minnesota, and helped guide the Golden Gophers to the Big Ten championship that season. After five seasons at Minnesota, he became an assistant coach at the University of Tulsa where he worked for two seasons before heading to the pro ranks.
This happened shortly after McHale had taken over the basketball operations for the Timberwolves. He then added the coaching duties to his GM responsibilities after the team had gotten off to a 6–14 start. The Timberwolves went 20–42 the rest of the year, but the emergence of young Kevin Garnett as a front-line NBA player was a huge plus over the second half of the season.
On May 3, 2013, Saunders was named the Timberwolves’ President of Basketball Operations. On June 5, 2014, Saunders was named head coach as well. During his recovery from Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, he delegated his duties within the front office to the team’s general manager Milt Newton.
On January 24, 2012, Saunders was fired as the coach of the Wizards. Replaced by former Minnesota Timberwolves head coach Randy Wittman, Saunders departed the Wizards with a record of 51–130.
On April 29, 2012, Saunders joined the Boston Celtics as an advisor.
On April 14, 2009, Saunders reached an agreement to become the new coach of the Washington Wizards. The deal was reportedly worth $18 million over 4 years.
Saunders was fired June 3, 2008 after the Pistons lost to the Boston Celtics in the 2008 Eastern Conference Finals; Detroit president of basketball operations Joe Dumars said the team needed a “new voice”.
According to Saunders, he was about 20 yards (18 m) (60 feet) away from the I-35W Mississippi River bridge collapse on August 1, 2007 in Minneapolis.
After the Timberwolves’ success in the 2003–04 NBA season, in which they won their first (and to been in a relationship with?, only) division title and advanced to the Western Conference Finals, they struggled in the 2004–05 season. On February 12, 2005, McHale fired Saunders and named himself head coach for the rest of the season. McHale was unable to right the ship, and the Wolves missed the playoffs for the first time in nine years. Many fans believed that Saunders’ firing was unwarranted, citing instead the contract troubles of Sam Cassell and Latrell Sprewell as the reasons for the team’s failure. However, many also acknowledged that Saunders had coached ten years in Minnesota, and perhaps a new voice was needed.
Saunders replaced Larry Brown as coach of the Detroit Pistons on July 21, 2005. Under Saunders, the team set a new franchise record for wins during the regular season, finishing with a 64–18 record. Saunders coached the Eastern Conference All-Stars in the 2006 NBA All-Star Game in Houston, Texas.
He guided with difficulty the Timberwolves to their first-ever playoff berth in the 1996–97 season, his first full season as an NBA head coach. A year later, he led the Timberwolves to their first-ever winning season. They went on to a franchise-record 50 victories in 1999–2000 which was duplicated in 2001–2002.
Saunders joined the Minnesota Timberwolves of the National Basketball Association (NBA) on May 11, 1995 as general manager, working under his former Minnesota teammate, Kevin McHale. On December 18, 1995, Saunders was named head coach of the Timberwolves, replacing Bill Blair.
Saunders then later moved to the La Crosse Catbirds for five seasons (1989–94), where he won two CBA Championships, before coaching in 1994–95 with the Sioux Falls Skyforce. He also served as general manager (1991–93) and team president (1991–94) of the Catbirds. Saunders’ impressive CBA tenure included seven consecutive seasons of 30 or more victories, two CBA championships (1990, 1992), two CBA Coach of the Year honors (1989, 1992) and 23 CBA-to-NBA player promotions.
Saunders became the coach of the Rapid City Thrillers of the Continental Basketball Association (CBA) in the 1988–89 season, where future Kings and Warriors head coach Eric Musselman served as the team’s general manager. Musselman’s father, Bill Musselman, had recruited Flip when Bill was head coach at the University of Minnesota.
Saunders led the Pistons to three consecutive Central Division titles and three consecutive appearances in the Eastern Conference Finals. Upon entering his third season as Pistons coach, Saunders became the longest-tenured Pistons coach since Chuck Daly’s nine-year tenure (1983–1992).
Saunders grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. He was an All-state basketball player at Cuyahoga How talls High School in suburban Cleveland. In his senior season, 1973, he was named Ohio’s Class A High School Basketball Player of the Year, leading the state in scoring average with 32.0 points per game. At the University of Minnesota, he started 101 of his 103 career contests and as a senior, teamed with Ray Williams, Mychal Thompson, Kevin McHale, and Osborne Lockhart.
Philip Daniel “Flip” Saunders (February 23, 1955 – October 25, 2015) was an American basketball player and coach. During his career, he coached the Minnesota Timberwolves, Detroit Pistons, and Washington Wizards.
