Indiana Fever general manager Tamika Catchings resigns

Tamika Catchings, (right) Indiana Fever vice president of basketball operations and general manager, announces that Marianne Stanley (left) will be the team's next head coach during a press conference at Bankers Life Fieldhouse on Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2019.

When she made the move, it made all the sense in the world.

Who better to usher the Indiana Fever into its next era of contention than the person who led them to a trio of WNBA Finals appearances and a title?

Two years later, Tamika Catchings is moving on from her role as vice president of basketball operations and general manager. She leaves behind a franchise that has been the worst in the league since her playing days ended. Since 2017, the Indiana Fever have the worst winning percentage (40-116, .256) of any team in the WNBA, NBA, NFL or NHL. 

“While change is never easy, now it’s time to take a step back from my role as General Manager, take a well-earned rest, and prioritize my family, my philanthropy, our community, and my other passions,” she said in a statement.
