Gary Kloppenburg leaves Indiana and returns to the Storm where he had been an assistant from 2000-2002.
A familiar name returns to the Seattle basketball scene as Gary Kloppenburg rejoins the Storm after 15 years away.
The 13-year WNBA veteran brings a wealth of experience and seemingly upgrades what had been the least experienced coaching staff in the WNBA.
“As we continue to evolve our team, systems and culture, Gary is an ideal addition to our staff,” said fifth-year coach Jenny Boucek in a statement released by the team. “He brings extensive knowledge, ideas and experiences that we feel will serve our team well.”
Kloppenburg replaces Leah Drury, who spent one year with the Storm last season. Ryan Webb is expected to return for his third season.
