Indina Fever hires former Sparks assistant coaches

Maybe the Sparks are getting ready to hire a new head coach, as the Fever has hired their former assistants:

INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Fever has named Gail Goestenkors and Gary Kloppenburg as assistant coaches to join Stephanie White in her first season as head coach on the Fever sidelines.

Goestenkors and Kloppenburg both have head coaching experience and last year they worked together as assistant coaches with the Los Angeles Sparks. Goestenkors was a long-time head coach at Duke and Texas in the college ranks, and last year made her coaching debut in the WNBA. Kloppenburg, a former Indiana assistant under Lin Dunn from 2008-11, was the head coach of the Tulsa Shock in 2012 and 2013.

White and Kloppenburg shared the Fever sidelines with Dunn during a 2011 season that saw Indiana finish 21-13 atop the Eastern Conference before falling in the conference finals. In separate seasons with Indiana, each was voted by league GMs as the top assistant coach in the WNBA.
