Steve Kerr unfazed about entering final year of contract with Warriors

Kerr has led Golden State to 4 championships and 2 other trips to the NBA Finals during his 9 years as coach.

Steve Kerr says he’s ‘thrilled’ to coach 12-time All-Star Chris Paul with the Warriors this season.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Steve Kerr has no concerns about his long-term status as coach of the Golden State Warriors despite heading into the final year of his contract.

Owner Joe Lacob and new general manager Mike Dunleavy Jr. have expressed a desire to get a contract extension and Kerr is confident something will work out — even if it doesn’t happen before the start of the season.

“I feel great about my position here,” Kerr said Monday. “I want to be here. I know Mike and Joe want me here, and so I’m very confident something will get done. But I’m not stressed about it at all. I’m perfectly capable of coaching whether I have one year left or an extension. Makes no difference.”
