The Cleveland Cavaliers have hired Lindsay Gottlieb as an Assistant Coach, Cavaliers General Manager Koby Altman and Head Coach John Beilein announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. She's also the first women's collegiate head coach to be tapped for an National Basketball Association position, which is a huge precedent for teams looking for the next big thing in the NCAA. In addition, Gottlieb led her squads to multiple NCAA tournaments, including a trip to the Final Four during the 2012-13 season.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made some serious shockwaves with their surprise hire of John Beilein, stealing him away from a decade's worth of program-building at MI to lead their team into a new era. "Lindsay truly values and embraces player development and a culture of winning basketball habits".

"I am very thankful, proud and excited to be joining the Cavaliers as an assistant coach", Gottlieb said in a statement issued by the team.

Several NBA teams in recent years have added women to their coaching staffs, but have often looked to the WNBA ranks for candidates.

Altman, who persuaded Beilein to leave MI after 12 seasons, is excited about what Gottlieb brings to a young Cavaliers team that endured two coaching changes since October.

The Cavaliers have lured away another prominent college coach.

"I am excited to have a coach with Lindsay's experience as a part of the new coaching staff with the Cavaliers", said Beilein. Her 179 wins are the second-most by any head coach in Cal women's basketball history. "It's great to see and I'm really happy for Swin and for Lindsay, of course, and hopefully there'll be many more".

ESPN reported that Gottlieb "is expected to have a level of staff prominence comparable to only two female coaching peers in the NBA": Hammon and former Sacramento Kings assistant Nancy Lieberman. "We're fortunate that she was willing to leave her role as Head Coach at such a solid and successful program at Cal".
