On Tuesday, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr spoke to the media and was questioned about his employment situation:
“Our organization has a lot to sort through this summer,” Kerr said. “My contract situation is not – nor should it be at the top of the list. Right now [Bob Myers’] contract situation is number one, because that influences a lot of the player decisions that have to be made, contracts, draft, free agency. So we will get to my stuff whenever that happens, and I’m in no rush for that. I love coaching, I love coaching these players, I love coaching the Warriors, I love living in The Bay. But I’m also in the NBA. All you have to do is look at your phone every day and see the next Hall-of-Fame coach that’s fired. It’s insane. I’ve never seen the league like this. I’m under no illusions that I have a lifetime job here or something like that. But I love what I do, and I hope to be coaching here for a long time.”
During his tenure as head coach, Kerr assisted the Warriors in winning four titles. He just had his first series loss before to the NBA Finals since taking over. As expressed by Kerr, he would like to lead Golden State for a very long time, but he is also aware of the realities of the profession.
