Report: Steve Kerr agrees to 2-year extension with Warriors

Steve Kerr

A two-year contract extension will keep coach Steve Kerr at the helm of the Golden State Warriors through the 2025-26 season, ESPN reported Friday night.

Kerr, 58, who has guided the Warriors to four NBA titles and is in his 10th season with the team, will make $35 million in the span, according to the report, which cited his agents at Priority Sports. His previous contract was to expire at the end of the current season.

Golden State was 28-26 and in 10th place in the Western Conference entering a Friday night home game against the Charlotte Hornets. That position would put the Warriors in the play-in tournament. The franchise is two years removed from its most recent title run, after winning three in four years from 2014-15 to 2017-18.

Kerr’s average of $17.5 million per season would make him the second-highest-paid coach in the league, trailing only the San Antonio Spurs’ Gregg Popovich, who is both the head coach and team president.

The Warriors were Kerr’s first head coaching job. His winning percentage of .655 (501-264) is fifth highest in NBA history.

Kerr played 15 seasons in the NBA as a guard for the Phoenix Suns (1988-89), Cleveland Cavaliers (1989-93), Orlando Magic (1992-93), Chicago Bulls (1993-98), San Antonio (1998-2001, 2002-03) and the Portland Trail Blazers (2001-02). He won three championship rings with the Bulls, then added two more with the Spurs.

He served as the Suns’ general manager from 2007-08 to 2009-10, with the team reaching the Western Conference finals in his last season.
