Coach and General Manager of the Phoenix Mercury Corey Gaines was Fired Thursday. The Mercury organization felt the team wasn’t living up to exceptions, after having the #1 pick in this years draft with Brittany Griner. Gaines help bring in two champions, as assistant and head coach in his five years with the Mercury. The team now will be coached by Russ Pennell, I personally feel with the key players injured on the team like Dewanna Bonner, Penny Taylor and Brittany Griner through out the season. I feel no can coach them to a championship, right now coach Pennell will have to his best players available players in Diana Taurasi ,Candice Dupree and a young bench.
