Derek Fisher joining LA Sparks as head coach

Derek Fisher hired to coach WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks

Fisher, a five-time National Basketball Association champion player and former head coach of the New York Knicks, will be introduced at a news conference on Friday in Los Angeles, sources said.

National Basketball Association champion and former NY Knicks head coach Derek Fisher is back in the coaching ranks. He was hired in 2014, but was sacked less than two seasons into a five-year deal.

"I'm excited to be the new head coach of the LA Sparks", Fisher said in a statement.

When Jackson was hired by the Knicks, the former Lakers and Bulls coach called upon Fisher to be his head coach. He led the team to a WNBA title in 2016, becoming the only head coach in the league's history to win with two different franchises. He was 40-96 in a year-and-a-half as head coach.
