76ers Interview Casey for Coaching Job

By  | 

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia 76ers have interviewed Dallas assistant Dwane Casey for their coaching vacancy.

Philadelphia has confirmed it interviewed the former Minnesota Timberwolves coach on Tuesday.

The Wolves went 33-49 in Casey's first year in 2006-07 and were 20-20 when vice president Kevin McHale fired him in 2007-08. He spent this season on Rick Carlisle's staff in Dallas.

The Sixers already interviewed former Wizards coach Eddie Jordan. They are set to interview Boston Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau.

The Philadelphia job became vacant when Tony DiLeo stepped down
last week and returned to the front office.
