Report: Tulsa Shock to hire former Atlanta Dream coach
The Tulsa World is reporting that Fred Williams, former Atlanta Dream coach who led the team to the WNBA Finals last year, will be named as the new head coach for the Tulsa Shock.
His dismissal in Atlanta was quite a surprise, especially after all the strides he made with the team and his working relationship with All-Star Angel McCoughtry, who reportedly had a power struggle with Williams’ predecessor, Marynell Meadors. The Dream started the season with the best record in the league, but they were later swept by the Minnesota Lynx in the WNBA Finals.
The World reports the Shock has called a 3 p.m. news conference to introduce the new head coach.
