Lindsay Wisdom-Hylton, after four seasons with three different WNBA teams, has joined the Purdue women's basketball staff and has indicated that she intends to retire from the WNBA.

According to an article from the Lafayette (Indiana) Journal and Courier, "Wisdom-Hylton said Wednesday she’ll retire from the WNBA to coach full time. She spent four seasons in the league with three different teams."

Wisdom-Hylton spent her college career at Purdue, staying there five years with a medical redshirt after tearing her ACL. She was drafted in the first round of the 2009 WNBA Draft by the Los Angeles Sparks, staying in LA for two years before being traded to Chicago before the start of the 2011 season. She spent her final season in Washington.

She played 124 games in her career, averaging 3.2 points per game.
