The Cleveland Cavaliers are reportedly set to hire University of California-Berkeley women’s head coach Lindsay Gottlieb to be an assistant to John Beilein, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported Wednesday.

Gottlieb joins the likes of Becky Hammon (San Antonio Spurs), Kristi Toliver (Washington Wizards), and Jenny Boucek (Dallas Mavericks), among others, who are now coaching at the NBA level.

Gottlieb has been the head coach at Cal since the 2011 season. She led the Golden Bears to an overall record of 179-89, leading them to the NCAA tournament every year but one, including a Final Four berth in 2013.
