With Cal women’s basketball coach Lindsay Gottlieb becoming an assistant coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers last week, can you ever imagine USC men’s basketball hiring a woman as a head coach?
Becky Hammond, the San Antonio Spurs assistant, would probably turn USC down. But if she hired Eric Mobley to bring his sons and Jason Hart to recruit the rest of the roster, you don’t think she could do as good a job as Andy Enfield?
Lynn Swann and Co. would never stick their necks out and hire a woman. But the risk seems less important now that you think about it.
