Our focus on storm.wnba.com the last couple of weeks has been the Storm Coaching Network – former Storm players now in the coaching ranks. Well, time for a quick rewrite. Katy Steding, part of that group, was hired by the Atlanta Dream today as an assistant to Head Coach Marynell Meadors. Steding had been the head coach at NAIA Warner Pacific College.
“For us to have a former WNBA player and former Olympian I think it’s just awesome,” Meadors said in the release. “It’s instant credibility for our team. It’s going to be a great situation, she is going to come in and do a great job for us.”
Steding becomes the second former Storm player to work on a WNBA sideline, the other being San Antonio’s Sandy Brondello.
