Wittman back as coach with 18-31 record with Wizards wire reports

WASHINGTON -- Randy Wittman will return as the coach of the Washington Wizards.

The team announced Monday that Wittman will keep the job he accepted after Flip Saunders was fired early in the season. Wittman had previously been an assistant on Saunders' staff.

The Wizards went 18-31 under Wittman to finish with a 20-46 record, second worst in the NBA. But they played better late in the season, winning their last six games and eight of their last 10.

The announcement comes as no surprise. There have been no recent indications the Wizards were shopping for a new coach, and Wittman was under contract for another season.

Wittman previously coached Cleveland and Minnesota. He has a 118-238 career record.
