Storm coach Jenny Boucek answered questions about the upcoming WNBA draft, rebuilding the Storm and more in a live chat on Thursday.

Boucek is the fourth head coach in franchise history, replacing Brian Agler in January. Agler, who hired Boucek as an assistant in 2010, left to lead the Los Angeles Sparks.

A former star guard at Virginia, Boucek has been involved with the WNBA since its inaugural season when she played for the defunct Cleveland Rockers. Following a career-ending injury in 1998, she began her WNBA coaching career as an assistant with the Washington Mystics in 1999. She then spent three seasons, 2000-02, in the same capacity with the Miami Sol.

Boucek’s first stint in Seattle was on former coach Anne Donovan’s staff from 2003-05, helping the Storm win its first WNBA championship in 2004. Boucek’s first WNBA head coaching position was in Sacramento, leading the now-defunct Monarchs to a 40-41 record from 2007-09.
