The Minnesota Timberwolves' search for a head coach appears to have hit a snag.

Dave Joerger declined the Timberwolves' offer Sunday and will remain the coach in Memphis, according to his agent.

The Timberwolves wanted to bring Joerger home to be their coach. All that stood in the way was agreeing on a contract and any possible compensation with the Memphis Grizzlies.

Joerger is from Staples, Minnesota, and went to college at Division-II Minnesota State, Moorhead.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor met with Joerger on Saturday, and the two sides were reportedly continuing to deliberate in a process that put Joerger firmly in the driver's seat to replace Rick Adelman.

Now his agent says Joerger will return to Memphis.
