The Indiana Fever announced Wednesday that they hired Vicki Hall, former Fever player and 1988 Indiana Miss Basketball, as an assistant coach on Marianne Stanley’s staff.
“We are excited to add former WNBA player and an Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, Vicki Hall, to our coaching staff,” Stanley, entering her second year as head coach, said in the team’s release. “Vicki’s passion for the game is off the charts and I know she will be a tremendous asset to our Fever team. We are fortunate to have someone with Vicki’s wealth of experience, as both a player and a coach, join us in building our championship culture here in Indiana.”
Hall played 13 games for the Fever during the 2001 season, averaging 2.8 points and 1.2 rebounds in 9.5 minutes per game. She also played for the Los Angeles Sparks and the now-defunct Cleveland Rockers in the WNBA, in addition to making stops overseas in France, Greece, Israel, Italy and Turkey over a 16-year period.
Hall was a 2015 inductee into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame.
“This is such an exciting day for me to come back to Indianapolis and continue my coaching career as a part of Coach Stanley’s staff,” Hall said in the release. “I am so grateful to be back in the city that created my love for the game and I will do everything I can to help bring a championship back to Indy.”
Hall most recently coached the Indiana State Sycamores, where she amassed a 21-59 record over three seasons. The reason for her departure from the school, announced last month, was unclear, though the two parties did “mutually agree” to part ways.
Hall previously served as the associate head coach at Toledo from 2012-18, an assistant coach at New Mexico from 2011-12 and an assistant coach at Miami (OH) from 2009-11.
