On Tuesday, the San Antonio Stars announced that head coach and general manager Dan Hughes has signed a multi-year extension with the team. Hughes has won 222 regular season games a head coach, second all-time, and has coached more regular season games than any other coach in league history. While in San Antonio, Hughes led the Stars to the 2008 WNBA Finals, and has developed a reputation as one of the best, if not the best player development coach in the league.
R.C. Buford, the President of Sports Franchises for Spurs Sports & Entertainment stated the following in a press release:
We are thrilled to have Dan Hughes as the leader of the San Antonio Stars for years to come. For the past decade he's provided great stability and consistency to the Stars organization and our community as an excellent coach and leader. The future of the Stars organization remains bright with Coach Hughes at the helm
A well-deserved extension for Hughes. Hopefully he can lead the Stars to a WNBA championship before it's all said and done.
