Sparks news: Coach Carol Ross to be at today’s press conference; WNBA schedule to be released this week

Lots of info in this early morning ESPN story:

Ross is set to appear at Wednesday’s news conference with Richie and Johnson, which likely indicates she is back as coach. Exactly how the team’s front office will be set up is still to be announced, but we know this: The Guggenheim baseball group has been very aggressive in returning the Dodgers to being a first-class sports operation…….

So this is a very bright day in the WNBA, not long after a cloudy one when the Sparks seemed potentially in peril. Richie said the league’s 2014 schedule is expected to be released this week.
