The Cleveland Cavaliers are in line to make history with their latest addition to new coach John Beilein’s staff. According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Cavs are set to hire Lindsay Gottlieb — who has been at the helm of the women’s program at the University of California, Berkeley since 2011 — as an assistant coach.

Gottlieb being hired for a role on the Cavs’ bench is unprecedented. When her hiring becomes official, Gottlieb will become the first head coach of a woman’s program to make the leap to the NBA.
