Spurs make Becky Hammon NBA's 1st female coach

Updated: Tuesday, August 5 2014, 04:39 PM CDT

The San Antonio Spurs have hired WNBA star Becky Hammon as an assistant coach, making her the first woman to join an NBA coaching staff.

The Spurs made the announcement Tuesday. Hammon plans to retire from the San Antonio Silver Stars after this season.

She spent some time around the Spurs during last season's run to the championship, and coach Gregg Popovich says she made a strong impression. Popovich says he's "confident her basketball IQ, work ethic and interpersonal skills will be a great benefit to the Spurs."

It's the latest trailblazing move for the Spurs, who hired European coaching legend Ettore Messina to join Popovich's staff earlier this summer.
