San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon is among those who will interview for the Milwaukee Bucks coaching vacancy — making her the first woman to interview for an NBA head coaching position.
ESPN broke the news of Hammon’s interview.
Hammon is the only female to work as an assistant NBA coach, having been hired by Gregg Popovich and the Spurs in 2014.
She is part of the Bucks’ wide-ranging coaching search, spearheaded by Jon Horst, who just completed his first season as the team’s general manager.
Along with Hammon, fellow Spurs assistant James Borrego, former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer and former Charlotte Hornets coach Steve Clifford are also expected to interview for the position, according to multiple reports.
Other candidates reportedly include former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt and former New Orleans Hornets/Pelicans coach Monty Williams.
