Rod­man eyes WNBA coach­ing gig in At­lanta

The Covington News - - SPORTS -

AT­LANTA— The owner of At­lanta’s new WNBA fran­chise wants his first head coach to be a wo­man— not just dress like one.

And that could be bad news for for­mer NBA re­bound­ing champ Den­nis Rod­man, the exChicago Bulls for­ward who has grabbed head­lines by dress­ing as a drag queen. Rod­man told The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion he is in­ter­ested in WNBA head coach­ing jobs, and has set his sights on At­lanta’s team, which is set to be­gin play in 2008.

“I love the city of At­lanta,” Rod­man told The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion through a spokesman. “At­lanta would be the ideal sit­u­a­tion, start­ing from scratch.”

Ron Ter­williger, the owner of the new fran­chise, isn’t so sure. He said al­though hir­ing Rod­man would cer­tainly drum up more in­ter­est in his yet-to-be-named team, he’s look­ing for some­one with more side­line ex­pe­ri­ence.
