On November 5th, 2009 Basketball Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman added a new piece of history to her already illustrious career when she was hired as the Texas Legends' first Head Coach. Lieberman, widely considered one of the most influential figures in women’s basketball history, will become the first female head coach to lead an NBA or NBA D-League team. Nancy will begin coaching the Legends starting in November 2010.
Nancy Lieberman added a new piece of history to her already stellar career by signing July 24th, 2008 to play for the Detroit Shock of the WNBA. Becoming the oldest player to ever play in the history of the league at the young age of 50. This breaks the previous record of 39 years old which Nancy established as a member of the Phoenix Mercury in 1997. Her rise through the ranks of professional sports and her significant contributions to women’s basketball encompasses such a rich and elaborate history. Lieberman’s distinguished career is one of monumental strength and motivation in the pursuit of becoming the greatest women’s basketball player. Her refusal to accept anything less than the best, her devotion to the sport, her relentless time and energy to the advancement of women playing professional basketball are a source of inspiration. Her quest for excellence is brilliantly diversified as a Hall of Famer, two-time Olympian, three-time All-American, WNBA coach & GM, acclaimed broadcaster for ESPN/ABC/NBA TV, motivational speaker, and esteemed writer and author. Nancy Lieberman represents the epitome of triumph and serves as a true pioneer for women in sports. In 2010 Nancy wrote her first business book “Playbook for Success” by Wiley Publishing.
