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

08 December 2018

Derek Fisher's coaching career did not go particularly well, as the former New York Knicks coach registered a 40-96 record in a year-plus at the helm in Manhattan before getting fired.

This will be Fisher's second head coaching opportunity.

Derek Fisher will have a second chance at coaching, but this time it will be with the Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

He also won five NBA Championship, all with the Lakers. "Derek is a champion and proven leader on and off the court".

OFFICIAL: Brian Agler has resigned as Los Angeles Sparks head coach. He is the winningest coach in WNBA history.

Fisher's tenure as a head coach in the National Basketball Association did not go well, posting a 40-96 record in a bit more than a season and a half. "Derek is a proven victor, tough under pressure and is a true believer in the power of the WNBA and the opportunities it provides for women on and off the court".

Fisher takes over a talented team led by two-time MVP Candace Parker.

Parker, who has been with the Sparks since 2008, said in a statement: "Derek is a great basketball mind who brings a ton of high-level experience to our team". After many successful years as one of the team atop the WNBA, the Sparks ended last season with a second-round playoff exit which doesn't meet the standards of a franchise used to competing for conference and league titles.
