Indiana Fever head coach Lin Dunn will be honored during an on-court ceremony before the Indiana Fever face off against the Seattle Storm on Wednesday night.

Dunn who will be inducted into the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame on June 14, is in her seventh season as head coach of the Fever. Dunn was also the original head coach and general manager of the Storm from 2000-2003.

Dunn has said that this season will be her last stand on the sideline after more than 40 years on the hardwood.

"It's time," Dunn said at a recent press conference. "44 years is a long time, it's plenty of time I've had some great experiences."

Dunn is already considered one of the most successful coaches in WNBA history. She has led the Fever to four conference finals appearances and a pair of WNBA Finals appearances. She won her first title in 2012 when the Fever defeated the Minnesota Lynx 3-1.

Despite leaving the sidelines, Dunn said she does plan to stay with the Fever in 2015 as a senior basketball advisor.

"I'm just happy about the fact that I can end my coaching career here with the Fever," she said. "It's been the best place I've ever coached."
