Phillip "Flip" Saunders (born February 23, 1955) is an American head coach of the Washington Wizards. He previously coached the Detroit Pistons and the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Saunders was born in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was an All-America basketball player at Cuyahoga Heights High School in suburban Cleveland. In his senior season, 1973, he was named Ohio's Class A High School Basketball Player of the Year, leading the state in scoring average with 32.0 points per game. At the University of Minnesota he started 101 of his 103 career contests and as a senior teamed with Ray Williams, Mychal Thompson, Kevin McHale (who was part of the Boston Celtics legacy of the 1980s, and more recently, was the Minnesota Timberwolves' vice president of basketball operations). Together they led the Gophers to a school-best 24–3 record.

While at Minnesota, he was a teammate and roommate of retired NFL head coach Tony Dungy.
