Paul Westhead, whose 8 zillion shots-a-game Loyola Marymount teams were always a joy to watch (unless you were Hank Gathers’ doctor), has been named the new head coach of the WNBA’s Phoenix Mercury.

Westhead (above), shoved out of the Lakers job in 1980 after running afoul of Magic Johnson, is the first WNBA clipboard czar to have previously led a team to an NBA championship.
