After a winter of sports as abysmal as the one Minnesotans have just suffered, it’s not surprising that the heads-will-roll season is underway.
Today, the Minnesota Wild announced that the contract of General Manager Doug Risebrough will not be renewed. In other words: He’s been fired.
Risebrough follows Jacques Lemaire out the door.
Last night, the Minnesota Timberwolves completed their season, so speculation is mounting that coach Kevin McHale will be the next onetime local hero to depart the scene.
