Steve Kerr receives record two-year, $35M extension from Warriors

The Golden State Warriors just secured their head coach, Steve Kerr, for a couple more years with a jaw-dropping $35 million contract extension. Yep, you heard that right – Kerr is now officially the highest-paid coach in NBA history! His previous contract was about to run out after the 2023-24 season, but now he’s locked in until the end of the 2025-26 season, which conveniently lines up with Stephen Curry’s contract.

Although Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs might rake in more annually, Kerr’s new deal still sets a pretty lofty standard. Erik Spoelstra of the Miami Heat recently scored an eight-year extension, pulling in around $15 million per season, so you can imagine the negotiations between Kerr’s team and the Warriors’ management were pretty intense.

But hey, it’s not hard to see why they wanted to keep Kerr around. He’s been instrumental in the Warriors’ success, boasting a winning percentage that’s fifth-best in league history. Players like Draymond Green are thrilled about the extension, praising Kerr’s leadership and the winning culture he’s built in Golden State.

Owner Joe Lacob clearly values Kerr’s contribution, making sure they locked him down for the long haul. And it’s not just about the NBA – Kerr is also set to coach Team USA in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. With a recent milestone of his 500th win and a record-breaking season under his belt, Kerr’s impact on the Warriors is undeniable.

So, with Kerr at the helm, the Warriors are looking towards a bright future, ready to keep dominating the courts for seasons to come.
