Becky Hammon Rumors

As Florida searched for a new head coach, they identified one specific target, as their top choice: the legendary Becky Hammon. While on the surface, it looked as if joining the Gators was a perfect fit for Hammon — she thought about taking it for a few days — Hammon has decided she will not take the coaching position at Florida. Instead, she will remain an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs under Gregg Popovich.
Becky Hammon has all of the necessary ingredients to not be just a good head coach one day, but a great one, once given the opportunity. And it looks like Florida is zeroing in on the WNBA legend and current San Antonio Spurs assistant coach. Hammon is a finalist for the vacancy with the Gators, multiple sources tell Swish Appeal. She will be visiting the Gainesville campus in the next couple of days, as Florida is down to their final three candidates — with Hammon being at the top of the list.
