The Dallas Wings have announced the team’s new head coach to pair with the release of the 2019 season schedule.
Less than a month after officially resigning from the LA Sparks, two-time WNBA Champion Brian Agler has found a new home in Arlington, Texas.
Agler joined Dallas Wings President and CEO, Greg Bibb, to address the media at College Park Tuesday morning.
“I appreciate the opportunity that Greg and the entire Dallas Wings organization has provided me,” said Agler. “It is very difficult to achieve high level of success in the WNBA. I want to help the team build a strong foundation of championship characteristics and traits; if this can be established the positioning for a championship can begin.
Agler has served 12 years as a WNBA head coach and has more victories under his belt than any other head coach in women’s basketball history, totaling to 315 regular season wins.
Having won one championship with the Seattle Storm in 2010 and another with the LA Sparks in 2016, Agler is the only coach in WNBA history to win a championship with two different franchises.
Agler will take reigns of this young Wings team in a transitioning phase as the team could possibly go without its two star players: MVP-runner up Liz Cambage and Skylar Diggins-Smith.
Cambage, who has openly expressed her frustration with many aspects of the WNBA league, has yet to confirm her commitment to return next season. All Star Skylar Diggins-Smith is likely to sit out next year after announcing her pregnancy in October.
“I am excited and looking forward to working closely with Coach Agler,” said Skylar Diggins-Smith. “He brings a wealth of knowledge, understanding and championship leadership to Dallas. I’m confident the Wings program will continue to grow and flourish under Coach Agler.”
The full season schedule can be found at the official Dallas Wings website.
