Woo hoo! This is fantastic news!
The NBA just became a more progressive place because the championship-winning San Antonio Spurs have just hired the first female assistant coach in NBA history!
Becky Hammon, a current WNBA player, has worked with the team and head coach Gregg Popovich for awhile, and they’ve decided to officially bring her on the staff.
And ironically, back in March of this year, Hammon and Coach Pop talked about the prospect of her coming to work for the Spurs full-time.
Now, that has become a reality!
Take a look at the video (above) to get a peek at just how awesome of a coach she already is!
Congrats to Becky and to the Spurs for being great!
