Dan Hughes

  • As of June 20, 2019

WNBA Seattle Storm head coach Dan Hughes was named on June 20, 2019, as an assistant coach for the 2019-20 USA Basketball Women's National Team through the 2020 Olympic Games.

Hughes previously served on the USA Basketball Women's National Team Player Selection Committee from 2009-16, was a court coach during the USA National Team’s February 2018 training camp in South Carolina, was on the sideline during the USA’s 83-46 exhibition victory over China in Seattle in April 2018 and joined the USA World Cup Team in Tenerife, Spain, after guiding the Storm to the 2018 WNBA title.

“I am thrilled to continue to serve on the USA National Team coaching staff through the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games,” said Hughes. “To be able to represent our country and assist some of the world’s greatest athletes and coaches is an incredible honor, and I am grateful for this opportunity.”

Named on Oct. 4, 2017, as head coach for the Seattle Storm, Hughes made a dramatic first impression in his inaugural season in leading the Storm to a league-best 26-8 record and the 2018 WNBA crown.

Hughes underwent surgery to remove a carcinoid tumor in his digestive tract on May 14, 2019, and will return to the Storm sideline June 21 when the Storm hosts the Los Angeles Sparks in Everett, Washington.

Prior to arriving in Seattle, Hughes spent 16 years as a WNBA head coach. He began his career in the league as the Charlotte Sting head coach in 1999, served as the Cleveland Rockers head coach from 2000-03 and was at the helm of the San Antonio Stars from 2005-09 and 2011-16.

In all, Hughes has directed teams to the playoffs 11 times and advanced to the 2008 WNBA Finals after guiding San Antonio to a first-place finish in the Western Conference with a 24-10 record.
