Derek Fisher Named New Head Coach of the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks

Derek Fisher is the new coach of the Sparks

Fisher, a five-time National Basketball Association champion player and former head coach of the New York Knicks, will be introduced at a news conference on Friday in Los Angeles, sources said. He famously took the job as head coach of the New York Knicks immediately after his retirement.

Some 35 months since coaching his last National Basketball Association game Fisher has resurfaced in Los Angeles now hoping to revitalize a coaching career that went from promising to punchline in a NY minute.

The Sparks are expected to announce the move Friday.

He replaces Brian Agler, who resigned last month after four seasons as head coach of the Sparks, including a WNBA Championship in 2016. The Knicks were 17-65 in his first season, the worst record in franchise history. "I look forward to working with someone with championship pedigree and who has a track record of strong leadership".

"I'm excited to be the new head coach of the LA Sparks", Fisher said in a statement.

Fisher, 44, helped the Los Angeles Lakers win five National Basketball Association titles during his 18-season playing career and served as president of the players' union. "I'm certain Derek will not only build on the Sparks championship culture, but also play an instrumental role in all the work we do in the Los Angeles community".
