Indiana Fever hires Pokey Chatman as head coach
The Indiana Fever hired former Chicago Sky head coach and general manager Pokey Chatman as its sixth head coach, succeeding Stephanie White according to the Indianapolis Star. The move comes nearly three weeks after the Sky released Chatman after six seasons.
White, who was in her second season as the Fever head coach, announced in May that she would take over as head coach of Vanderbilt university at the conclusion of the 2016 WNBA season.
Chatman had an overall regular season record of 106-98 with the Sky. The Fever will announce her hiring formally at a press conference on Friday at 11:30 a.m. ET.
