I'm looking for a word/phrase that means "a team quickly put together from miscellaneous people".

It is NOT "ragtag group"/"motley crew".

I think it is "[something] team"

    Ah, ok. Please next time include your investigations - how about multitudinous – mplungjan Feb 24 '14 at 13:27

    In the context of a team for sports or other competition this might be called a 'scratch team' – aPaulT Feb 24 '14 at 13:52

If you want a more "official" sounding term you could try ad hoc:-

for the special purpose or end presently under consideration: a committee formed ad hoc to deal with the issue.
