Russian club Sparta&K has announced they have re-signed head coach Pokey Chatman and her assistant Christie Sides for the 2012/13 campaign.

Chatman was named the head coach in the fall of 2009 when the team’s owner Shabtai von Kalmanovic decided to get rid of Laszlo Ratgeber a couple of weeks in the season.

Sides has worked with Chatman since the 2005/06 season in LSU.

Chatman in team’s announcement:

I’m excited to extend my time here in Spartak! I’ve had the privilege of coaching some of the best players in the world, while enjoying tremendous success, both on the scoreboard, but equally important, off the court.

Anna Arkhipova Von Kalmanovic has continued to put the Spartak stamp on this, club, and I’m ecstatic she wants me to continue at the helm. This truly is a special place, that has helped me to grow as a coach and student of the game
