During the month of July, Nick Pierce will chat with each member of the Liberty women's basketball coaching staff. The series begins today with the staff's newest member, Katie Mattera.
Mattera, who recently wrapped up her first season as an assistant coach for the Lady Flames, is no stranger to Liberty Mountain. A two-time All-American center at Liberty (2003-04 and 2004-05), Mattera led the Lady Flames to the NCAA Division I Tournament Sweet 16 as a senior in 2005. She was inducted into the Liberty Athletics Hall of Fame in 2015.
After graduating from Liberty, Mattera spent five seasons in the WNBA. She also served as head women's basketball coach at Cornerstone University in her hometown of Grand Rapids, Mich., for six seasons (2012-18).
