The Timberwolves interviewed Vinny Del Negro last week for the teams head coach position.

According to a source who spoke with KSTP's Darren Wolfson, Del Negro interviewed well with president Flip Saunders, but has not yet met with owner Glen Taylor. 

Del Negro is one of many candidates being considered for the job, including former Wolves forward and Toronto coach Sam Mitchell.

Dave Joerger also interviewed with the Wolves, but declined after receiving a contract extension with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Del Negro is the former coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, but was fired at the end of the 2013 season after losing in the first round of playoffs. He also coached the Chicago Bulls for two seasons before being let go.
