Milestone watch: WNBA coaching totals to watch in 2019

12 of 12

Dan Hughes (Seattle Storm)

Overall Record: 263-295 (558 games coached)

Record in Seattle: 26-8 (34 games coached)

There’s no better coach to wrap this up on than Dan Hughes, coach of the reigning champion Seattle Storm and all-time leader in games coach in the league with 558.

He currently trails Brian Agler by just six wins, so they could swap spots on the all-time wins leader board this summer, though with Breanna Stewart’s absence this summer due to injury and the unknowns still looming for the Wings, it’s hard to project a win total for either team.

Of course every game Hughes coaches extends his record in games coached, but he can also hit a couple of milestones with the Storm this summer. After a 26-win first season in Seattle, 24 more wins would get him to 50 total in his second season, and his 16th game this year (July 5 against Atlanta) will be his 50th for the Storm.
