INDIANAPOLIS—Pokey Chatman will not be back for a fourth season as head coach and general manager of the WNBA Indiana Fever.

The team made the announcement Monday, following a season in which the Fever finished 13-21. In her three-years as coach, Chatman had a 28-74 record.

"We want to thank Pokey for her time with our franchise and we wish her the absolute best," said Tamika Catchings, Fever Vice President of Basketball Operations. "Our organization is optimistic about our future as we continue to build on our 20-year legacy as one of the WNBA's most successful franchises."

The search for a new coach and general manager begins now, according to Catchings.

When the 2020 Fever season begins, the new coach will not be on the sidelines at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The team will be playing home games in 2020 and part of 2021 at Butler's Hinkle Fieldhouse as Bankers Life goes through a major renovation.
