SAN ANTONIO, July 26 (UPI) -- The WNBA San Antonio Silver Stars fired Coach Candi Harvey Saturday and named assistant coach Shell Dailey her replacement on an interim basis.
Harvey followed the Utah Starzz to San Antonio this season, but the Silver Stars have lost six straight and nine of their last 10 games and are in sixth place in the seven-team Western Conference with a 6-16 record.
The Silver Stars also fired assistant coach Tammi Reiss.
Dailey joined the Silver Stars last April 3 after four seasons as an assistant coach at the University of South Carolina. A native of McKinney, Texas, she played four seasons at the University of Texas and spent three seasons as coach at Texas Christian.
Before her stint at South Carolina, Dailey was an assistant at Texas A&M during the 1997-98 season and with the Nashville Noise of the defunct American Basketball League in 1998.
