DALLAS (AP) - Nancy Lieberman is set to become the first female head coach of a NBA Development League team.
A news conference is scheduled Thursday to introduce Lieberman
as the first coach of the team that will begin play during the 2010-11 season in Frisco, a suburb about a half-hour north of downtown Dallas.
A press release sent out Wednesday by the Dallas Mavericks, which will be an affiliate of the Frisco team, touted the pending announcement of "historic additions" to the new D-League franchise. Among the participants listed for the news conference is "Head Coach Nancy Lieberman."
Lieberman didn't return messages left on her cell phone and through e-mail.
