Steve Kerr Introduced as Warriors Head Coach
May 20, 2014
The Warriors held an introductory press conference for new Head Coach Steve Kerr on Tuesday, May 20.
Kerr joins the Warriors with 26 years of NBA experience as a player, television analyst and front office executive, including a three-year stint (2007-10) as president of basketball operations and general manager for the Phoenix Suns.
Among those in attendance at the press conference was Kerr’s college coach at the University of Arizona, Lute Olson.
At the press conference, Kerr was joined on stage by Warriors General Manager Bob Myers and event emcee and Warriors television broadcaster Bob Fitzgerald.
"This is a very good team, and that’s one of the reasons that I wanted to come here," Kerr said during the press conference.
Kerr also said that the relationship between ownership, general manager and head coach is of paramount importance in achieving success in the NBA.
"When you strip it all away, it's all about winning and this guy to my left has won at every level," Myers said at the press conference.

Kerr played for six teams over his 15-year NBA career and was part of five championship clubs.
A standout shooter, the 6-foot-3 guard holds the NBA record for career three-point percentage (45.4%) and his 52.4% on 3-pointers (89-for-170) in 1994-95 is also a single-season NBA record.
One of the top highlights of Kerr’s playing career was making a game-winning jump shot in Game 6 of the 1997 Finals.
That shot clinched the title for the Chicago Bulls, the second of three straight rings he won in Chicago.
Kerr would go on to win two more NBA Championships with the Spurs in 1999 and 2003.
After his playing career ended in 2003, Kerr got into the broadcasting side of the business as an analyst for TNT.
After spending several years as a broadcaster, Kerr joined the Phoenix Suns as the President of Basketball Operations and General Manager prior to the 2007-08 season.
His three-year stint in Phoenix concluded with a trip to the Western Conference Finals in 2010.
While still the GM in Phoenix, Kerr spoke to then- rookie guard Stephen Curry before a Warriors-Suns preseason matchup in 2009.
Kerr stepped down from his position with the Suns and returned to broadcasting during the 2010-11 season.
In addition to calling NBA games, Steve Kerr has also been on the broadcast team of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament for CBS and the Turner Sports networks.
