Los Angeles, CA — Fisher has been the team’s head coach since 2018 and the General Manager since 2020. However, the Sparks have been off to a bumpy start this season sitting at 5-7 despite having Nneka and Chiney Ogwumike, Liz Cambage, Chennedy Carter and Jordin Canada to name a few. The Sparks have been without Kristi Toliver who was coaching in the NBA Playoffs but Los Angeles still has a lot of firepower.
“The Sparks and I have mutually agreed to part ways as I shift my focus back to pursuing other opportunities and private endeavors,” Fisher shared in a statement. “It has been an amazing ride and I wish the entire LA Sparks organization great success moving forward.”
For the remainder of the season, Fred Williams will be the interim head coach. Williams started the season as an assistant under Fisher, however, he does have head coaching experience having held the position for the Dallas Wings.
