The Dallas Wings are hiring Sparks assistant Latricia Trammell as the organization’s next head coach, as first reported by Howard Megdal of The Next Hoops.
Trammell has been an assistant in the WNBA since 2017, including the past four seasons with the Los Angeles Sparks. She was previously one of the top candidates for the Dallas Wings job before the 2021 season.

Trammell will succeed Vickie Johnson, who the Wings decided to part ways with earlier this offseason even after the franchise made the playoffs for the second year in a row. Johnson finished her time with the franchise with a 32–36 record.
The Wings finished 18-18 this season in the WNBA, their best record since the team moved to Dallas in 2016.Trammell will inherit a Wings team laden with young talent, led by two-time All-Star Arike Ogunbowale.
Trammell will be the Wings’ fifth coach since 2018. There are now two head-coach openings in the WNBA, with the Connecticut Sun and the Indiana Fever.
