Bob Myers on former Cal coach, current Cavs assistant Lindsay Gottlieb: 'I should have hired her'

Former Cal women's basketball coach Lindsay Gottlieb is now an assistant coach with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Golden State Warriors general manager Bob Myers says he regrets not hiring her himself.

In a long ESPN profile on Gottlieb's first season with the Cavaliers, Jackie MacMullen writes that Gottlieb became a "regular" at Warriors practices during her time at Cal's head coach from 2011-2019.

After she was hired by Cleveland, Myers lamented to MacMullen, "I should have hired her."

When Gottlieb left Cal for the NBA over the summer, she became the first NCAA women's head coach to be hired by an NBA team.
