The Florida Gators search for a new women’s basketball coach could be in the final stages. Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical is reporting that Florida has offered NBA assistant Becky Hammon a “lucrative” deal to become the next head coach.
Wojnarowski is also reporting that Florida’s offer would be a considerable raise from Hammon’s current position with the San Antonio Spurs.
According to the report Hammon is mulling over the decision due to her desire to be the first female head coach in the NBA.
Hammon was a six time WNBA all-star who joined the Spurs coaching staff in 2014 after an injury forced her retirement.
