According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is reportedly finalizing a lucrative contract extension.

Kerr is entering the final season of the five-year, $25 million deal that he originally signed in May 2014. He led the Warriors to the NBA Finals every season during his tenure thus far. He delivered three out of four NBA championships.

When Kerr was initially hired, he told NBA.com that going to the Warriors “just felt like the right move on many levels.” That was the correct feeling as Kerr has been at the center of what many would describe as a new dynasty in the Bay Area.

Over the past four years, the Warriors have averaged 66 wins per season, seen two Kia MVP seasons from Stephen Curry, utilized a successful system that landed Kevin Durant in 2016, produced several individual NBA All-Star appearances and three NBA championship trophies.

Kerr currently has a 265-63 regular season record and a 63-20 postseason record, the best marks among NBA coaches since he joined the Warriors.
