The Bucks are going to interview Becky Hammon for their head coaching job, according to ESPN.
The Milwaukee Bucks plan to interview San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon for the franchise's head coaching job, league sources tell ESPN. Hammon is the NBA's first female assistant coach -- and now will be the first to interview to be a head coach.- Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) May 5, 2018
If Milwaukee were to hire Hammon, she would be the first female head coach in NBA history.
That being said, Hammon has served as head coach for the Spurs' summer league team, so she has been at the helm before. She has just not done it in the regular season full-time as of yet.
The 41-year-old has served as an assistant for the Spurs since 2014 and has won a summer league title as well.
She spent 16 seasons in the WNBA with the San Antonio Stars and New York Liberty.
Milwaukee fired Jason Kidd as its head coach midseason. Joe Prunty served as the interim head coach the rest of the season.
