BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Athletic Director Mike Bohn says basketball coach Jeff Bzdelik had a "casual" conversation with the Minnesota Timberwolves about their head coaching vacancy.

Bohn told the Daily Camera in Boulder he believes Bzdelik 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 he spoke with Timberwolves General Manager David Kahn at the NBA summer league in Las Vegas.

Bzdelik became the Denver Nuggets' head coach for 2002-03 and was fired midway through 2004-05.

After the Nuggets, Bzdelik went to the Air Force Academy and then Colorado.
