“I am really excited to add someone of Joe’s caliber and experience to our staff,” said head coach Marynell Meadors in a statement. “Joe has a winning legacy and he has coached some tremendous teams. His value is not only as a strategist but also in the rapport he establishes with his players. Joe loves to teach the game and I think that his success is a reflection of that passion.”

“I am excited about having the opportunity to work with the Atlanta Dream,” said Ciampi. “I had the chance to work with Marynell from a player development perspective two years ago and really enjoyed the team and the coaching staff. Hopefully I can help us keep growing as a team and knock down that final barrier to win a championship.”
