Flip Saunders Speaker Profile
Flip Saunders Biography
Flip Saunders was born February 23, 1955 and is the head coach of the Washington Wizards. He previously coached the Detroit Pistons and the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Saunders replaced Larry Brown as coach of the Detroit Pistons on July 21, 2005. Under Saunders, the team set a new franchise record for wins during the regular season, finishing with a 6418 record. Saunders coached the Eastern Conference All-Stars in the 2006 NBA All-Star Game in Houston, Texas.
Despite the successful season, however, Saunders has been a target of criticism for the Pistons' playoff performance, in which the Cleveland Cavaliers pushed them to 7 games in the 2006 Eastern Conference Semifinals. The worn-out Pistons then lost the Eastern Conference Finals to the Miami Heat in 6 games. Saunders has received criticism for the poor defensive showing by the Pistons in the East finals. This has been speculated as a deciding factor in Ben Wallace's decision to sign a free-agent contract with the rival Chicago Bulls in the 2006 offseason. The 2007 playoffs also ended in disappointment for Saunders and the Pistons as the Cavaliers rallied from a 20 deficit to win the next four games and the Eastern Conference title.
Upon entering his third season as Pistons coach, Saunders became the longest-tenured Pistons coach since Chuck Daly's nine-year tenure (19831992).
On April 14, 2009, Saunders reached an agreement to become the new coach of the Washington Wizards. The deal reportedly is worth 18 million over 4 years.
