Is Becky Hammon Becoming An NBA Head Coach?
Becky Hammon already made history as the first full time female assistant coach in NBA history when the San Antonio Spurs hired her in 2014.
Now she's on the verge of making NBA and sporting history again.
In 2015 she made history again when she was named as the Spurs head coach for the NBA Las Vegas Summer League team. She made that groundbreaking achievement even more memorable for her by guiding the Spurs to the NBA Las Vegas Summer League championship.
The Milwaukee Bucks fired Jason Kidd and are looking for a new head coach for the 2018-19 season. They just started their coaching search and announced their intention to give Hammon an interview for their vacant job,
She's made it clear that she wants to make the history of becoming the first female NBA head coach, and has turned down opportunities to coach at several high profile college basketball programs to make that dream a reality.
Will Hammon get that Bucks job? I sure hope so because San Antonio is a Houston Rockets division rival and I could easily see her being the Spurs next head coach when Popovich finally retires.
Best of luck to Becky Hammon and hope she gets that interview.
