Sad to learn the news. I never knew she was from Plymouth, MA. That's less than 30 minutes from me.

The paper of record finally noticed

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/19/sports/basketball/nancy-darsch-dead.html

Quote:
After two seasons and a 35-23 record, Darsch was dismissed in September 1998 after the Liberty had failed to make the playoffs that year. The following February, she was named head coach of the Washington Mystics. But she resigned during her second season with the team after a poor start and amid reports of tension with Chamique Holdsclaw, one of the league’s top players.


"Tension" is one way to put it. Holdsclaw's quote was "I don't play for the coaches, I play for my teammates. ... I think we'll win basketball games with (Darsch), but I don't think we'll ever be a great team. If we do, it will be because of us."

Apparently not loved much by at least one player.
