The Washington Wizards fired coach Flip Saunders on Tuesday after opening the season with a National Basketball Association-worst 2-15 record.

The Wizards, who started the season with eight consecutive losses, were trounced by the Philadelphia 76ers 103-83 on Monday for their seventh road loss in as many tries this year.

Assistant Randy Wittman will take over on an interim basis for the remainder of the season beginning with the Wizards hosting the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.

Saunders, 56, coached the Minnesota Timberwolves for 10 seasons and the Detroit Pistons for three before coming to Washington for the 2009-10 campaign.

The Wizards have not advanced beyond the first round of the playoffs since 2004-05. They were 26-56 in Saunders' first season before slipping to 23-59 a year ago
