Tanisha Wright, a member of the 2012 WNBA champion Seattle Storm and a former standout at Penn State, was named an assistant coach with the Charlotte 49ers’ women’s basketball team.
She played at Penn State when Cara Consuegra, now coach at Charlotte, was an assistant coach.
“She brings a wealth of experience from the professional ranks,” Consuegra said of Wright. “I think she’s going to be an unbelievable coach, and I’m thrilled she’s starting her coaching journey with us.”
Wright, a guard who played 12 seasons in the WNBA before retiring last year, also played in Europe during the WNBA offseason.
