One of the most prominent women in basketball could be going to Gainesville.

San Antonio Spurs assistant coach and six-time WNBA All-Star Becky Hammon is reportedly one of three finalists for Florida’s women’s basketball head coaching position, according to Swish Appeal and RealGM.com.

Hammon, who the Spurs hired in 2014, is the first full-time female assistant coach in any of the four major male sports leagues.

The Gators fired Amanda Butler on March 6 after 10 years at the helm. She finished her Florida career with a 190-137 record.
