WNBA star Becky Hammon became the NBA’s first female full-time assistant coach on Tuesday, as she joined Gregg Popovich and the San Antonio Spurs.

It’s a historic moment for the NBA and one that wasn’t lost on basketball coaches across the inland northwest.
Here’s some local reaction from Twitter:

  I think it's great... long overdue. I think she will do a terrific job. I've never understood why the barrier has ever been an issue. Pat Summit would have been a great pioneer.

I think it shows how much they value their culture and trust those who are invested. She's been there and earned it,it's great!
