“Laurie gave us three great years with the Shock, helping us to a WNBA Championship in 2003 and we’re going to miss having her on our staff,” said Laimbeer. “We’re currently interviewing candidates for the position, and are looking for an experienced coach who understands the kind of preparation in takes to succeed in the WNBA and who can help us evaluate talent at both the WNBA and collegiate level. We hope to have our coaching staff completed in the coming weeks.”
