Becky Hammon Rumors
Jason Minnix: It really is only a matter of time before @Becky Hammon gets a head coaching job. Colorado State makes sense on many levels. Michael C. Wright: I’m told she doesn’t want to coach at that level. She’s had offers in the past. She’s an NBA coach.
Alvaro Martin: MySA.com: @Becky Hammon is a top candidate for the vacant head coaching position for her alma mater’s men’s basketball team, @CSUMensBball. If she accepts, she would be the first female HC in NCAA Division I men’s basketball history. @SportsCenter_nt @SC_ESPN
Becky Hammon played eight seasons for the San Antonio Stars, and was the face of the franchise during its glory years. She has her No. 25 retired in the rafters at the AT&T Center, the only WNBA player to achieve that honor in the Alamo City. So Hammon’s reaction to the news San Antonio is poised to lose the only WNBA franchise it has ever known was not surprising. “It sucks,” Hammon said.
For Hammon, now an assistant coach with the NBA’s Spurs, the planned move struck a chord. “I’m sad,” Hammon told the Express-News before the Spurs’ preseason game in Houston on Friday. “I put a lot of literal blood, sweat and tears into that team. I’m more sad for the young girls and boys in the area. I’m sad for the next generation.”
