The Cleveland Cavaliers are hiring University of California-Berkeley women’s coach Lindsay Gottlieb to join head coach John Beilein’s staff as an assistant coach, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Gottlieb, 41, is a decorated head coach, a Final Four and seven-time NCAA tournament head coach during her time with the Golden Bears, posting a 179-78 (.668) record while coaching several eventual WNBA players.

During her time at the helm of the Golden Bears, Gottlieb has led teams that advanced to seven NCAA tournaments in her eight seasons at Cal, including a trip to the 2013 Final Four.

Gottlieb’s hiring is historically significant, as she becomes the first women’s collegiate head coach recruited to an NBA staff in league history.

Gottlieb is expected to ink a 4-year pact with the Cavaliers, and will play a prominent role alongside Beilein and assistant head coach JB Bickerstaff.
