Report: Lindsay Gottlieb leaving Cavaliers to become USC women’s basketball coach

NBC Sports


Article Summary:

The Cavaliers made history by hiring Lindsay Gottlieb – then the head coach of the Cal women’s basketball team – as an assistant coach in 2019.

Initially hired under John Beilein, Gottlieb stuck in Cleveland as J.B. Bickerstaff replaced Beilein.

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN:

Cleveland Cavaliers assistant Lindsay Gottlieb has agreed to a six-year contract to become the women’s head coach at USC, sources told ESPN.

Gottlieb leaves the NBA after an aggressive USC pursuit to bring her back to the Pac-12 Conference, including a massive upgrade in program salary and resources with hopes of restoring USC to the elite of women’s college basketball, sources said.

The pipeline between female NBA assistants and women’s college basketball coaches flows in both directions. Gottlieb has proven to be a strong women’s college basketball coach and is landing a premier job on that level.
