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

The Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA have hired Derek Fisher as head coach.

Derek Fisher and Phil Jackson were the Hollywood power couple that would revitalize the New York Knicks. He was hired in 2014, but was sacked less than two seasons into a five-year deal.

Agler resigned in November after being the team's head coach for four seasons.

Fisher will be the 12th head coach in Sparks history, which includes fellow former Laker Michael Cooper. The Sparks defeated the Minnesota Lynx, 75-68, in the first round of the playoffs, then lost to the Washington Mystics, 96-64, in the second round.

The Los Angeles Sparks are excited to announce the hiring of five-time NBA Champion Derek Fisher as Head Coach. He spent time with the Lakers (13 seasons), Thunder (three seasons), Warriors (two seasons), Jazz (one season) and Mavericks (one season).

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Fisher will officially be introduced at a press conference on Friday afternoon in Los Angeles.

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". "I look forward to working with someone with championship pedigree and who has a track record of strong leadership".
