Steve Kerr hired to coach Golden State Warriors

It had been rumored for weeks by the so-called NBA experts in the media, that when Phil Jackson took over as team president of the New York Knicks that he would hire Steve Kerr.

To some it seemed far-fetched that Jackson would actually hire Kerr, who has never been an NBA head coach, to lead the Knicks.

While Jackson was still deciding on who he would hire, Kerr was also negotiating with the Golden State Warriors.

As it turned out, the Warriors out-bid the Knicks and have hired Kerr away from his job as a TNT broadcaster to replace Mark Jackson as their head coach.

Kerr, according to his agent, will be paid $25 million dollars on a five-year deal.

The 48-year-old Kerr was born in Beirut, Lebanon while his dad, Malcolm was engaged in higher learning and research in the Middle East.

The former point guard played his college basketball at the University of Arizona for Lute Olson and his teammates included Sean Elliott, Tom Tolbert and Kenny Lofton.

As an NBA player, the 6’3, 175-pounder played for Phoenix, Cleveland, Orlando, Chicago, San Antonio twice and Portland. He scored 5,437 points and 1,658 assists. He won five NBA Championships.

The first head coach the Columbus Blue Jackets ever had, Dave King is still a fan favorite everytime he comes to town with the Phoenix Coyotes. He still receives a nice ovation from the crowds at Nationwide Arena.

The fans at the Arena probably won’t see Coach King too much in the future because of he is changing jobs.

King has stepped down from his position as assistant coach to become the Coyotes’ development coach. He will oversee all pro player development, including working with coaches and players with minor-league Portland of the American Hockey League.

King’s first CBJ team in 2000-01 was 28-39-9-6 for 71 points; in 2001-02 the team regressed to 22-47-8-5 for 57 points and got off to a bad start in 2002-03 with a record of 14-20-4-2 for 34 points. King was fired January 7, 2003.
