The Los Angeles Sparks of the WNBA have hired Derek Fisher as head coach, the team announced Wednesday.

OFFICIAL: Brian Agler has resigned as Los Angeles Sparks head coach.

Fisher, a five-time National Basketball Association champion, played 18 seasons in the National Basketball Association.

"I am thrilled to name Derek Fisher our next head coach", Sparks Executive Vice President and General Manager Penny Toler said in a statement.

The suit says the Woloshins rented the house a year ago after their home was damaged by Hurricane Irma, agreeing to pay $30,000 a month. According to the Sparks' official website, Fisher has expressed his excitement in taking over the team. "Derek is a champion and proven leader on and off the court".

Derek Fisher is the new coach of the Sparks

Some 35 months since coaching his last National Basketball Association game Fisher has resurfaced in Los Angeles now hoping to revitalize a coaching career that went from promising to punchline in a NY minute.

Fisher's tenure as Knicks head coach included a freaky domestic spat involving former teammate Matt Barnes and his estranged wife, Gloria Govan.

Fisher becomes the 12 head coach in Sparks franchise history.

Fisher takes over a talented team led by two-time MVP Candace Parker. "Derek has been a strong supporter of women's basketball for quite some time, so it's nice to officially welcome him".

It's a bit surprising that the Sparks are bringing in a guy with a checkered past and a brutal win-loss record as a head coach.
