Breaking: Golden State Warriors sack Steve Kerr for…

Steve Kerr agrees to a 2-year extension that breaks records.

Steve Kerr is not going anywhere, in spite of the pleas from an oddly negative section of the internet. When the head coach of the Golden State Warriors entered the final year of his contract without a new deal in place, several suspicions surfaced, but they have since been refuted. Kerr’s representatives informed ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Friday, just before the team’s game against the Charlotte Hornets tip-off, that the team’s captain, the Warriors, had inked a $35 million, two-year contract.

Although it’s not the longest contract in the NBA, Kerr is the highest paid coach in history with an annual compensation of $17.5 million (although Gregg Popovich has a greater contract because he is paid for his dual roles as coach and president of the San Antonio Spurs).

The Warriors chairman, Joe Lacob, had publicly stated in the past several days that he fully expected to have a deal done with Kerr shortly, so the news is not shocking.

Kerr could only leave for good the next season if he made the decision to retire as a coach. Since Steph Curry has made it clear that he does not want to play for any other coach

While some questioned if Kerr was still interested in coaching or if his body could handle the demands of the NBA season, Kerr’s decision to lead Team USA at the 2024 Olympics seemed to address both concerns. That made it clear that he was able and willing to continue coaching, which virtually guaranteed an extension.

Now that the terms of the agreement are known, it shouldn’t come as a huge surprise that Kerr’s extension is only good for the 2025–2026 season, which is also Curry’s final season under contract. It’s a safe guess that Kerr will resign in the summer of 2026, if Curry does.
