Becky Hammon is one of the greatest players to play women’s college basketball and has earned a tremendous amount of respect during her short time as an assistant coach in the NBA. As a result, outlets are reporting that she’s a finalist for the head coaching job at Florida, which would be a giant step up for the female coach.

Since no one is speaking publicly on the decision or shortlist, it’s largely conjecture, but surely millions are rooting for her to land the job and blaze a trail for women coaches in high-profile college programs, male or female.

Of course, if she were to stay, it’s possible she could be writing her own ticket both within the Spurs organization and possibly elsewhere in the NBA.

I guess what we’re saying is…the future looks bright for Becky wherever she ends up.
