Steve Kerr Extends Contract with Golden State Warriors

The Golden State Warriors announced on Tuesday that head coach Steve Kerr has signed a multi-year contract extension, solidifying his position with the team for the foreseeable future. While financial details were not disclosed by the Warriors, ESPN reported that the two-year deal will make Kerr the highest-paid head coach in the NBA, with an annual salary of $17.5 million.

Kerr, 58, has been an integral part of the Warriors’ success over the past decade, guiding the team to four NBA titles. His tenure with the franchise has spanned 10 seasons, and his previous contract was set to expire at the end of the current season.

Under Kerr’s leadership, the Warriors have consistently been contenders in the league, with their most recent championship title coming in the 2017-2018 season. Despite facing challenges in recent years, including injuries to key players and roster changes, Kerr has continued to steer the team with skill and determination.

At the time of the contract extension announcement, the Warriors held a 29-27 record and were in 10th place in the Western Conference. While the team’s position would put them in the play-in tournament, Kerr remains focused on leading the Warriors to further success in the postseason.

“I’m thrilled to continue the partnership that I have enjoyed with this great franchise for the past 10 years,” Kerr said. “I want to thank the people who have put their trust in me to coach our team, including Joe Lacob, Peter Guber, and the entire ownership group. And, of course, I want to thank my wonderful coaching staff and all of the amazing players who have worn the Warriors uniform this past decade.”
