Steve Kerr Will Accept The Warriors' Job

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports
Multiple sources are reporting that TNT announcer Steve Kerr will accept the Golden State Warriors head coaching position. Per ESPN,
quote:

Steve Kerr has turned down Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks to accept a five-year, $25 million offer to become the Golden State Warriors' next coach, saying "it just felt like the right move on many levels."

"They have a good young team. The location is ideal," Kerr said in a phone interview with NBA.com on Wednesday night. "My daughter goes to Cal and plays volleyball. My oldest son is in college in San Diego and our youngest is a junior in high school. It's just a short flight for them."
Taking the Warriors job meant that Kerr would have to turn down a 4 year offer he received from his former coach Phil Jackson who he won 3 NBA tittles with.
quote:

"Ultimately, it was agonizing to say no to Phil because of what I think of him and what he's done for my career," Kerr said, according to NBA.com. "When Phil Jackson asks you to coach the Knicks, how do you say no? I think they're going to turn it around, but going to be a big undertaking and it's going to take time. The idea of doing that 3,000 miles from home, it just didn't feel right."
Kerr spent three seasons as general manager of the Phoenix Suns between 2007-2010, but has never served as a head coach.
