Derek Fisher has won five NBA titles as a player, but his career as a coach continues to be remarkably successful.

Los Angeles Sparks announced Tuesday that it has parted ways with Fisher, who has been working as their coach and general manager.

Assistant coach Fred Williams will take over as Sparks interim coach for the entire WNBA season.

This was Fisher's fourth season as Sparks coach after being hired in 2018.

He also took GM's obligations to them in 2020. Under Fisher's leadership, Sparks went 54-46 (.540) and made two playoffs.

Sparks entered the 2022 season with high expectations after signing Liz Cambage's All-Star center on a star-studded

list that already features the likes of Ogwumike's sisters (Chiney and Nneka) and Kristi Tolliver.

But Sparks opened the year just 5-7, which is currently the fourth in the Western Conference.
