Not really sure how i feel about this. Dont know if he is the right fit for this team. What happens to Kloppenburg? Back to being an assistent?

Nice... Perhaps Dan could lend some of his GM skills as well to the franchise. No more trading their 1st round pick for a backup center Exclamation

And of course, Dan always likes to run the 3-guard lineup, so looks like that's where SEA is headed Idea

very interesting....I thought he was stepping down at SAS on his own power but apparently he got shoved.... Well it will be interesting to see what he does with more talent.

Or he wanted to give Vickie a chance at being a headcoach and now he is ready for a new challenge

I don't think he really wanted to retire, but he saw the writing on the wall in San Antonio and got out on his own terms.

Is he going to be GM too (or otherwise be made personnel czar) or just be coach?

He was looking for new challenges; he had told me he was considering some offers to coach international teams.

I don't know who would have been a better choice, but this feels quite uninspiring to me.

Awful sportscaster, poor General Manager, excellent teacher of the game, better than average coach. He should do well for Seattle as a coach. No fucking trades!

Ironically, he stupidly gave away Stewart to Seattle and now the basketball gods have blessed him.

Thanks Dan for burying the shit out of SAS but I'll be rooting for your success in Seattle.

Maybe he just really likes coaching but doesn't like the responsibility of building a team.

yeah, retirement doesn't suit everyone. Maybe his wife told him to get out of the house too. It works both ways. Anyway he is likeable in a curmudgeonly way. I wish him well.
Answer to above question: no he won't be the GM.
I wonder if Klop will be given another shot somewhere.

Just to add some context, Hughes has a losing record for his career.

from announcement:

“We are thrilled to welcome Dan to the Seattle Storm organization,” said President & General Manager Alisha Valavanis. “Dan is one of the most well-respected coaches in our league. His experience in the WNBA and as a leader in USA Basketball is a wonderful match for our developing team.”

Take a chance on the Storm? More like take a chance on Hughes. They hired a lifetime losing coach lead a team with two of the best young stars in the league. He's a baffling Becky Hammon trade away from having not just a losing record, but a bad one.

He comes Birdy-approved. What else needs to be said?

Quote:
“I am excited to get in the gym with Coach Hughes,” said Bird. “We have crossed paths a lot, both in playing against each other in the WNBA and in our time together with USA Basketball. He demands a lot from his players, and I know our team will respond as we work to return championship basketball to Seattle.”


He couldn't build up a team. Let's see what he can do with a team already built, plus he gets that tastey #5 pick.

Best he could get as a starting center while in San Antonio was Jayne Appel. Frequent 6th woman Perkins left, lack of being able to bring in vets and couldn't build a team around Becky Hammon.

He did go to the 2008 Finals, when Sophia Young had an MVP-worthy season.
I dunno... I like this move better than keeping Klop.

Looking at Hughes' record over the years is a good argument for the players being the overwhelming factor of what determines the team record. Hughes was 24-10 at San Antonio and also 7-27. He was 22-10 in Cleveland and also 10-22.

If I was the Storm GM I would have asked the Storm players, particularly the stars, how they felt about Kloppenberg. If they were positive about him, I would have kept him. Maybe that happened. For the GM perspective, Kloppenberg is saddled with the track record of those two losing years in talent less Tulsa.

Quote:
During the course of his coaching career in Cleveland, Charlotte and San Antonio, Hughes has usually had to rebuild. He was excited for the chance to start with a strong foundation in place.

"They are farther along than any team I've had," Hughes said. "Talk about Sue, Stewie and Jewell and some pieces I saw. I liked the chemistry I saw, they imitated what I believe in. There is work that needs to be done, but they are farther along in the process."

That makes him the same as Brian Agler. Agler couldn't win in Minnesota, couldn't win in Seattle once Lauren Jackson retired. He was 28-6 in Seattle, but also 12-22. In LA he's been 26-8, but also 14-20.

I will agree with this , he has not shown he can build a team in his tenures. He has always kind of rubbed me as an old school coach who refuses to adapt to the new style of play when it comes to his teams. Not proud of the storm's front office for this choice. They could have done a bit more searching before announcing or giving him the position .

To be fair the 14-20 year he only had parker half the season.

I couldn't disagree with this more. He went three guards before most did; he was able to get Sophia Young to be an undersized four and be a success when that didn't happen often.

He's coached a team with Ann Wauters at center, and Ruth Riley at center, totally different.

He's had Becky Hammon and Merlakia Jones. Totally different

My own story, which leads me to buy into the "player-dependent" mode.

I pretty much have run the same system over the years -- halfcourt man, a little halfcourt trap, pick-and-roll, uptempo, shoot threes.

With good players, we've done really well. With players who can't shoot well, we've struggled (and I'm not talking about just threes).

So it's the same system, same coach, but results dependent on skill level of players -- or so I like to think.

What a joke. Dan Hughes? Really? The coach who only made the playoffs in 6 of his 11 years in San Antonio? The coach who only won 7 games in his final season there? Horrible coach. Better than Boucek obviously but yikes. I woulda kept Kloppenburg. The Storm looked a lot better when he took over and drove them to the playoffs. This Seattle franchise gets dumber and dumber on a yearly basis.

I don’t remember him building anything. He lucked into getting Becky Hammon and that was about it. Aside her on their rosters, I don’t remember much of anything else that was any good.

He wears goofy ties and likes rock and roll.

2010 was Brondello. Only 2 winning seasons, but 4 years in playoffs. Dan didn't get the ping pongs enough. Just too good to hit a Minnesota, Phoenix, or Tulsa level of ping pong balls.

Speaking of coming out of retirement, I wonder if they could have gotten Anne Donovan to come back? At least she won us a championship.

IMO, he was an above average drafter. Sophia Young, Danielle Robinson, Danielle Adams, Moriah Jefferson, and Kayla McBride were pretty good value picks.

Don't all pro leagues do that?

Young, Jefferson, and McBride were lottery picks, basically picked and performed as expected. Maybe he gets points for picking Robinson over Ta'Shia Phillips and Kayla Pedersen, though I am not sure anyone else would have used the pick differently.

Adams, I'll give you, though she was eventually waived.

With the lack of talent most of those stars teams had i would guess that most of the coaches would have a losing record. Besides Becky he never had a lot of star players. Sophia Young is no Taurasi, Moore etc.

Don't let that Hughes anywhere near the Lottery or trading table. He's a poor judge of talent and he can't control himself (ego) when he has power and authority. He's like an addicted gambler going to the Las Vegas casinos.

Keep him in his role as educator, trainer and coach where his talents lie and he should do well.

If not, he'll fuck this team up to where they'll never be able to achieve the level of success they could rise to.
