HoopsHype Steve Kerr rumors
Q: How's your double-life going when it comes to getting rolling with Golden State while flying around covering these games? Steve Kerr: Well it's busy, but it's all good. The hardest thing is responding to all the people who are looking for spots. Everybody is calling me about a spot on the (coaching) staff. I've got a million calls to make. That's the hardest part. But I'm talking to (Warriors general manager) Bob Myers every day, and we're working on the staff and I'm finishing up with Turner before I can head up to the Bay and I can get going full speed. I'm looking forward to that, and then I'm also having fun doing this last series with all my guys at Turner, so it's great. USA Today Sports
While four-time NBA champion and three-time Coach of the Year Gregg Popovich is thought to be earning $6 million annually with the Spurs, Steve Kerr, a man with absolutely zero coaching experience at any level, just signed a deal worth $5 million annually from the Warriors to become their next head coach. Stan Van Gundy and Doc Rivers both received $7 million to coach their teams and have the final say in roster decisions, with both inevitably having to hire again a general manager to do the bulk of the leg work on the roster construction, while Coach of the Year Tom Thibodeau had to fight for his $4 million.
