Former Storm coach Lin Dunn honored in Tennessee

LinDunn.jpgLegendary coach Lin Dunn, who built the foundation for the Storm as its inaugural coach/general manager, will be inducted into the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame.
The ceremony is slated for Feb. 19 in Nashville, Tenn. Dunn, now coach of the Indiana Fever, led the Storm’s sister franchise to the WNBA Finals in October. The Fever lost the best-of-five series to the Phoenix Mercury.
While in Seattle, Dunn, 62, drafted two-time MVP Lauren Jackson and perennial All-Star Sue Bird. Dunn was 95-110 overall in three season’s leading the Storm, not getting her contracted renewed. Known for her wit and hoops knowledge, Dunn (pictured above) began her coaching career in the ABL.
Dunn, a native of Dresden, Tenn, began her coaching career at Austin Peay State University in 1970. She compiled a 25-year collegiate record that included a 63.5 winning percentage at four schools (447-257). She left three — Purdue, Miami and Austin Peay — as the winningest coach in program history.
