BREAKING: Los Angeles Sparks Hire Derek Fisher As Head Coach
Who saw this coming?
Back in 2016, the New York Knicks fired former NBA player Derek Fisher following a 23-31 start to the season after going 17-65 in Fisher’s first season in 2014-15.
He has now found his way back to coaching, but in the WNBA.
The Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA have hired Derek Fisher as head coach, league sources tell ESPN. News conference is set for Friday.

Fisher had no previous head-coaching experience before then-team president Phil Jackson hired him on to rectify the struggling New York franchise.
