Dallas Make First WNBA Off-season Move

With the WNBA offseason only hours old, the Dallas Wings made a quick move for their future.

More Details

The Wings chose not to exercise the option on coach Vickie Johnson’s contract, the team announced Monday.

In two seasons as head coach, Johnson led the squad to a regular season record of 32-36 and back-to-back first-round playoff appearances.

The Wings’ win over Connecticut in Game 2 of the first round this year was the organizations first playoff win since 2009.


While the team has made quantifiable progress, there were signs that Johnson had lost key player relationships.


In July, guard Allisha Gray was reported by Girls Talk Sports TV as “likely to be moved in the offseason,” in a possible player-generated trade.

Also in July, forward Isabelle Harrison questioned Johnson’s rotations, replying “when you find out, lemme know” to a tweet about her lack of playing time.

“At this time I believe a change provides our team with the best opportunity to achieve our long-term goals of advancing in the playoffs and ultimately competing for a WNBA Championship,” said Wings CEO Greg Bibb.
