Bill Laimbeer’s coaching staff is finally intact.

The Las Vegas Aces’ head coach and general manager unveiled his assistant coaches Wednesday night in a televised interview with KLAS-8.

He’ll be joined on the sidelines this season by former WNBA veterans Kelly Schumacher-Raimon and Vickie Johnson.

Schumacher-Raimon played college basketball at national power Connecticut from 1997-2001, and played in the WNBA from 2001-09.

She won a pair of WNBA championships with the Detroit Shock in 2008-09 while playing for Laimbeer, who coached the team from 2003-09.

Schumacher-Raimon was on the Chicago Sky’s coaching staff last season.

Johnson played college basketball at Louisiana Tech from 1992-96, and was drafted in the inaugural WNBA Elite draft in 1997.

She played in the WNBA from 1997-2009, and spent the last seven years coaching the San Antonio Stars — serving as an assistant from 2011-16 and head coach last season.

The Aces relocated to Las Vegas from San Antonio in October.
