Meet the First Full-Time Female Assistant Coach in NBA History.
The San Antonio Spurs hired WNBA star player Becky Hammon as an assistant coach. Hammon is the second woman to work on an NBA coaching staff, but the first that’s a full-time employee.
The 37-year-old Hammon became a six-time WNBA All-Star after a prolific college career at Colorado State. She set the WAC’s all-time scoring mark during her time in college and left Colorado State as the record holder in points, three-pointers and assists. -SB Nation
