Mike Francesa with an unfathomable display of sexism. (Except for cheerleaders, presumably.) pic.twitter.com/2n2pl ZMLIF — Funhouse (@Sports Funhouse) March 2, 2017 Mike Francesa had a caller.He cited the example of Becky Hammon being an assistant coach with the San Antonio Spurs. There is an ingrained societal bias against women coaching men’s teams.He ridiculed the idea of a woman managing men as impossible. “We was goofing around and Pat was watching,” Williams wrote.“Do you know how difficult it would be on a female to manage 25 men? “She got fed up and threw the ball, and everyone stopped.
'I get a lot out of their film sessions, just listening to the coaches go back and forth on what they think is happening on certain plays.' She won over Spurs coaches and players during that unofficial internship last season.
San Antonio Spurs assistant Becky Hammon is considering a lucrative offer to leave the NBA and become the University of Florida women’s basketball coach, league sources told The Vertical.
The financial offer would be a considerable raise, especially considering that she’s still a young, behind-the-bench assistant on Gregg Popovich’s staff.
It’s not fair, but Hammon faces hurdles others wouldn’t.
And the glass ceiling becomes exponentially thicker for a woman in women’s basketball who’s trying to jump to men’s basketball.
