The Tulsa World reports former Tulsa Shock interim head coach Teresa Edwards has been named an assistant coach with the Atlanta Dream.

A five-time Olympian, Edwards returns home to Georgia where she once starred at Cairo High School and the University of Georgia.

“I’m grateful for this new opportunity to be back on the hardwood, because there is nothing like doing what you love to do, doing it where you feel at home and doing it with winners,” Edwards said. “The Atlanta Dream has a rich tradition of winning, and I’m very pleased that Coach Cooper has offered me a seat on his bench. It’s going to be work, but I’m anticipating fun work given the championship caliber of the Dream. Expectations will be high and I am very excited to join the staff and take on the challenge of winning a championship with the Dream.”
