The former University of Minnesota star already has her next job lined up, having agreed in April to coach the women's basketball team at her alma mater.
The 36-year-old is also a two-time Olympic gold medalist who has appeared in the league finals eight times.
The Lynx didn't make the playoffs in 2010, but they ended up with the top pick in 2011, Maya Moore. The woman that put Hutchison, MN on the map and lifted a struggling University of Minnesota women's basketball team to the Final Four would now suit for her home state's WNBA squad.
Despite the influx of talent, the Lynx struggled in Whalen's first season, finishing 13-21 and out of the playoffs.

Lindsay Whalen #13 of the Minnesota Lynx looks on during the game against the Seattle Storm on August 3, 2018 at Key Arena in Seattle, Washington.
She holds the single-season franchise record for assists (199 in 2011) and the franchise mark for most assists in a single game (14 vs. Los Angeles on September 4, 2013).
While Whalen's talent and on-court toughness made her a WNBA All-Star, there are also intangibles that contributed to her success. Her peak season was 2013, when she averaged 14.9 points, 5.8 assists and 4.4 rebounds as the Lynx won the WNBA title. Lindsay's will to win made her special, along with always putting her team and teammates first.
If history is any indicator expect the wins to pile up fast for Whalen, the Gophers and Minnesota.
