Wizards fire coach Flip Saunders

After a 2-15 start, the Washington Wizards fired coach Flip Saunders, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

The Wizards have talked to assistant Randy Wittman about taking over as the interim head coach, but no agreement has been reached.

In his third season with the Wizards, Saunders was the victim of the Gilbert Arenas gun suspension, injuries and the ultimate breaking up of the Antawn Jamison-Caron Butler playoff core. He finished 51-111 as Wizards coach.

In 15 years as a head coach with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Detroit Pistons and Washington, Saunders is 638-526.

The Wizards have been something of a sideshow this season, with the losing punctuated by the immaturity of a young team.
