Rick Adelman May Step Down as T’Wolves Coach to Focus on Sick Wife

Sports are exciting and all, but sometimes things get put into perspective. Rick Adelman, coach of the T’Wolves, is dealing with a personal dilemma. His wife has been dealing with a medical condition that has had her hospitalized.

Needless to say, Adelman is having a tough time focusing on basketball.  To the point where he may step down as head coach. If so, we certainly can’t blame him.

They’ve been terrific with everything,’ he said of management, as wife Mary Kay was hospitalized and doctors tried to determine the cause of seizures. Now, clearly worn down by difficult months on the personal front and a challenging season on the court as the Timberwolves drown in a flurry of injuries, he admitted, ‘there’s a couple times I really struggled whether I should come back.’ He later added: ‘I’m sure I’ll be thinking more about it as we move on here (through the season).’

When asked about the possibility of not returning in 2013-14, Adelman said, ‘I think it’s something I’m just going to have to sit down with my wife and family and just talk about and see where we’re going with this. The most important thing is where we’re going with her health. Whatever happens will happen naturally.’
