Steve Kerr Named Head Coach of USA Basketball


Steve Kerr will succeed Gregg Popovich as the new head coach of USA Basketball, multiple outlets reported Friday.

Kerr was an assistant on Popovich’s gold medal-winning squad at the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

Kerr, the head coach of the NBA’s Golden State Warriors, will coach Team USA at the 2023 FIBA Basketball World Cup and the 2024 Paris Olympics, according to ESPN.

USA Basketball managing director Grant Hill has been meeting with candidates for several months to replace the 72-year-old Popovich.
