Colorado: : Athletic director Mike Bohn says men's basketball coach Jeff Bzdelik had a "casual" conversation with the Minnesota Timberwolves about their head coaching vacancy. Bohn told the Daily Camera in Boulder that he believes Bzdelik, a former UMBC coach, is committed to the Buffaloes. Any further discussions with the Timberwolves would require permission from Colorado. Bzdelik was on a recruiting trip Thursday and unavailable for comment. He told the Rocky Mountain Independent in Denver earlier Thursday that he spoke with Timberwolves general manager David Kahn at the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas. Bzdelik became the Denver Nuggets' coach for 2002-03 and was fired midway through the 2004-05 season. After the Nuggets, Bzdelik coached at Air Force and then Colorado.
