Sheryl Swoopes, one of the top players in women’s basketball history, is the new coach at Loyola of Chicago. A standout at Texas Tech in the early 1990s and the first three-time most valuable player in the WNBA, Swoopes will try to invigorate a struggling program.
Cynthia Cooper-Dyke is returning to her alma mater, as USC announced the Hall-of-Famer will be the school’s next women’s head basketball coach.
Cooper-Dyke had a stellar playing career as her resume lists two NCAA titles at USC, four WNBA championships and an Olympic gold medal.
She has been a collegiate head coach for eight years, leading Texas Southern to a Southwestern Athletic Conference regular season championship last season. Before that, Cooper-Dyke spent five years at Prairie View A&M (2006-10) and two at UNC Wilmington (2011-12) and has a career record of 150-106.
So who do you think will have the best record their first season??
