Yesterday, the Connecticut Sun named Catherine Proto as an assistant coach to Anne Donovan's staff for the 2013 season. Proto was one of Donovan's assistants at Seton Hall, and before spent seven years with the New York Liberty for scouting and video operations. Former Washington Mystics Assistant Coach Jennifer Gillom is the other assistant on the team.
Proto gave a statement through the team saying,"I am very excited to be joining the Connecticut Sun organization. I look forward to continuing the winning tradition in Connecticut and working alongside coach Anne Donovan again this season." In addition, Coach Donovan said, "I have had the pleasure of working with Catherine for the last five years in both the WNBA and at Seton Hall. Catherine has a great basketball mind. Her seven years of experience with the New York Liberty will be a tremendous asset to our staff.”
