San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Becky Hammon has reportedly turn down an offer to become the next head coach for Florida women’s basketball.
Hammon reportedly considered the offer for a couple of days. But while it would have meant a raise compared to what she makes in San Antonio, Swish Appeal’s Mike Robinson reported Florida’s offer “was in the lower tier when it comes to the average salary in the SEC.”
Florida fired former head coach Amanda Butler earlier this month after a 15-16 record (5-11 SEC) this season.
Hammon became the first full-time female coach in NBA history when the Spurs hired her in 2014. She coached the Spurs to an NBA Summer League championship in 2015.
