Here at the Deep Dish, we don't cover the WNBA much -- but maybe that'll change now that Pokey Chatman has been named coach and general manager of the Chicago Sky.â†µâ†µ
In the Sky's five seasons in the WNBA, they have yet to have a winning year and their overall record is 61-106.â†µâ†µ
Chatman, though, has a 114-16 coaching record (90-14 in five-plus years at LSU), which includes going 16-0 as coach of Russian Spartak Moscow Region in the Euroleague; they won the 2010 Euroleague championship. She has her own website, CoachPokey.com.â†µâ†µ
And in case you were wondering what a "Coach Pokey" looks like, this isn't it:â†µâ†µâ†µâ†µ
That's Gumby and Pokey, something else entirely. This is Coach Pokey:â†µâ†µ
Good luck to her and the Sky next season.
