As she was being honored by the Indianapolis-Marion County Council Monday evening for a history of coaching and success leading the WNBA's Fever, former  Purdue women’s basketball head coach Lin Dunn couldn't help but mention the makeup of the body honoring her.

"I love seeing all these women in leadership roles," Dun said. "Keep it up. Next time I come back, I want it to be 50/50."

Dunn had previously announced she’d retire from coaching after this year’s Fever season. She still holds the record for most wins by a Purdue women’s basketball coach. She says she’ll still spend some time mentoring coaches during her time off.

She also told the councilors she’ll be an advocate for Indianapolis as the splits her time between Tennessee and Florida. She also joked she’ll remember the Circle City during the slightly-less-cold Florida winters.
