Cheryl Reeve Biography

The 2021 WNBA season will serve as Cheryl Reeve’s 12th season as Lynx Head Coach and fourth in the dual role as Head Coach and General Manager. At the conclusion of the 2020 WNBA regular season, Reeve was named Coach of the Year for the third time in her career in 2020, tying Van Chancellor and Mike Thibault for most all-time. In 2017, she led the Lynx to a 27-7 record and their fourth WNBA championship in the last seven years. Since taking over as Lynx head coach, Reeve owns a career 259-125 record, the most coaching wins in franchise history. She was initially named head coach on Dec. 8, 2009, taking over for former head coach Jennifer Gillom. On Dec. 6, 2012, Reeve signed a multi-year contract extension with the club. Prior to the 2016 season, the Lynx signed Reeve to a multi-year contract extension. On December 28, 2017, Reeve signed a multi-year contract extension and was also named general manager.

Reeve is the sixth dual Head Coach and General Manager currently in the WNBA, joining James Wade (Chicago), Curt Miller (Connecticut), Bill Laimbeer (Las Vegas), Mike Thibault (Washington) and Derek Fischer (Los Angeles).

Under Reeve’s tutelage, the Lynx have compiled 245 wins over the last 11 seasons, the most prolific 11-year run in WNBA history. Finishing the 2017 season 27-7, Minnesota has registered its sixth 25-win campaign in the last seven years, becoming the first WNBA franchise to win 27+ games in a season four separate times. Since taking over in 2010, Reeve’s .674 winning percentage (259-125) ranks first in league history; she's one of just two coaches to win more than 60% of their games (Van Chancellor, .655). Her 42 career playoff victories are the most in WNBA history as well as her .636 (42-24) winning percentage in the playoffs ranks first in league history.

In 2018, Reeve registered her 200th career victory June 19 vs. Dallas, joining Chancellor and Thibault as the only WNBA coaches to win 200 games with one franchise. She passed the late Anne Donovan to become the league’s winningest female head coach and passed Donovan for sixth on the all-time coaching wins list.

Reeve guided the Lynx to the first championship in franchise history in 2011, being named the WNBA Coach of the Year after leading Minnesota to a league-best 27-7 regular season record. The Lynx made a 14-game improvement from 2010, marking the second-largest single-season win increase in WNBA history. Reeve went on to lead the Lynx to WNBA championships in 2013, 2015 and 2017.

On May 12, 2014, USA Basketball named Reeve as an assistant coach to the 2014 USA Basketball Women’s World Championship Team. After assisting head coach Geno Auriemma to the gold medal and a 6-0 record at the 2014 FIBA World Championship, USA Basketball announced on Feb. 9, 2014, that Reeve would return as an assistant for the USA National Team through the 2016 Olympic Games. She recently joined Dawn Staley’s staff as a 2018 USA National Team assistant coach when Team USA went a perfect 6-0 to capture gold at the 2018 FIBA World Championship.

Additionally, Reeve’s coaching résumé includes 26 years as both an assistant and a head coach at the collegiate and WNBA levels. In 2009, Reeve served as an assistant coach with the WNBA’s Detroit Shock, and was promoted to the team’s general manager position just three games into the season. Hired by three-time WNBA champion head coach Bill Laimbeer, Reeve joined the Shock coaching staff in 2006 and helped the franchise reach the WNBA Finals in each of her first three years, winning WNBA titles in 2006 and 2008. During her four years with Detroit, the team held an 87-49 win/loss record and won at least 18 games each season, including 24 in 2007. Reeve also served as the Shock’s director of player personnel in 2008.

Reeve got her start in the WNBA with the Charlotte Sting in 2001 when she joined Anne Donovan’s staff as an assistant coach. After posting an 8-24 record in 2000, Charlotte turned things around in Reeve’s first year, going 18-14 en route to advancing to the WNBA Finals. Reeve spent the 2002 season again in Charlotte before joining Dan Hughes’ coaching staff in Cleveland for the 2003 season. Reeve returned to the Sting in 2004 and 2005 before joining Detroit in 2006. In Reeve’s nine years as an assistant, she compiled a .543 winning percentage (163-137 W/L), including seven postseason appearances and advancing to the WNBA Finals four times.

Before joining the WNBA coaching ranks, Reeve spent 12 years coaching collegiately, including a five-year stint as head coach at Indiana State from 1995-2000. Reeve guided the Sycamores to the program's first postseason berth in 20 years following the 1998-99 campaign. Reeve also spent five years as an assistant coach at George Washington. During that time, the Colonials posted five 20-win seasons, captured three Atlantic 10 Conference Championships and appeared in four NCAA Tournaments. Reeve got her start in coaching at her alma matter, La Salle, as an assistant coach for two seasons.

As a player at La Salle, Reeve led the nationally-ranked Explorers to a 25-5 record in 1987-1988. She was named All-Metro Atlantic Conference and was an All-Big 5 selection as a senior. Reeve holds the school record for most games started (110) and ranks fourth on La Salle’s career assist leader board (420).

Reeve excelled athletically and academically at La Salle, graduating with a degree in computer science/management information systems. A Rhodes Scholar nominee, Reeve received both a MAAC Scholar-Athlete Post Graduate Award and a NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship in 1988. She went on to earn her master’s degree in business administration from her alma mater while also serving two years as an assistant coach for the Explorers.
