INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Fever have hired former Purdue
and Seattle Storm coach Lin Dunn as the team's fourth coach in its
eight-year WNBA history.
Dunn succeeds Brian Winters, who was 78-58 in four seasons and
took the team to the playoffs three times. Winters was let go in
October with one year left on his contract.
Dunn was a Fever assistant for four seasons. Before that, she
was 33-63 in three seasons with Seattle after nine years at Purdue,
where she led the Boilermakers to the 1994 Final Four.
Last season, the Fever started out 16-5, but then lost eight of
13 games after star forward Tamika Catchings suffered an injury to
her left foot. Catchings returned for the playoffs, but tore the
Achilles' tendon in her right foot in the conference finals.
