Arizona Sports has an article about it.


By Arizona Sports:

The Phoenix Mercury and head coach Sandy Brondello have mutually agreed to part ways, the team announced Monday.

Hired as head coach in 2014, Brondello’s contract expired at the end of the 2021 season and will not be renewed.

Just don't get it unless she wants to step away from coaching and spend more time with her family.

I’ve been critical of Sandy’s ability to develop young players. Now she goes to the Liberty who have one of the youngest teams (I think I read they were THE youngest team last season). Curious to see how she will do.

I am so jealous of the Aces for nabbing Becky Hammond as coach.

Totally not fair Becky Hammond going to Aces.

I wonder if what we now know about Sarver is what caused Sandy to leave team. Maybe she had enough of the toxic work environment and decided to go somewhere else?

That’s a possibility. But in reading between the lines of interviews and articles and such, it seems Sandy wanted to stay but Mercury said no.

If it was the organization's decision then there is no logical reason except for they are idiots.
