Coach Bio

Steven Key
College - Boston University
On Dec. 7, 2005, Steven Key was named assistant coach of the Chicago Sky. Key came to the Sky with more than 10 years of professional basketball playing experience in Europe, and three years of head coaching experience.

Key is 6’4 former point guard at Boston University, where he played for head coach Mike Jarvis from 1986-1990. He went on to play one season in the CBA, before taking his game overseas, where he played in several leagues throughout Germany and Austria.

He retired from playing basketball three years ago to become the head coach of the Düsseldorf Magics in Germany, a Division 2 men’s basketball league. Key guided the team to a 3rd place finish, improving from a 5th place finish the year before.

Entering his second season in the WNBA, Key is extremely excited about having the opportunity to coach along side new Sky head coach Bo Overton. Key and Overton share many of the same philosophies and ideas about what it takes to win both on and off the court.

Key is most excited about his continuing contributions towards building the Sky into a championship contender, and an overall better team.
