Bridget Pettis (born January 1, 1971) is an Assistant Coach of the Chicago Sky Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) professional basketball team. She is an American former college and professional basketball player who was a guard in the WNBA for eight seasons during the 1990s and 2000s. Pettis played college basketball for the University of Florida, and professionally for the Phoenix Mercury and the Indiana Fever of the WNBA.
Pettis attended Central Arizona College in Coolidge, Arizona, and played junior college basketball for the Central Arizona Vaqueras. She accepted an athletic scholarship to transfer to the University of Florida in Gainesville, Florida, where she played for coach Carol Ross's Florida Gators women's basketball team from 1991 to 1993. Memorably, she completed eight three-point shots against the Georgia Bulldogs on January 20, 1993—still the Gators' single-game record.
She graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor's degree in 1993.
The Phoenix Mercury selected Pettis in the first round (seventh pick overall) of the 1997 WNBA Draft. She played for the Mercury from 1997 to 2001, the Indiana Fever in 2002 and 2003, and the Mercury again in 2006. Her first two seasons with the Mercury were the most productive, when she started fifty-six of sixty games played, and averaged over fourteen point per game. In her eight-season WNBA career, she played in 228 games, started seventy-one of them, and scored 1,408 points.
On March 6, 2014 Pettis was named Assistant Coach for the Dallas Wings. In October, 2017 (after 4 seasons) Pettis announced her retirement from the Wings organization.
