Steve Kerr Biography

Beginning his ninth season as the head coach of the Golden State Warriors, Steve Kerr has guided the club through its most prolific seasons in NBA history with a list of accomplishments that includes four NBA championships (2015, 2017, 2018, 2022), six NBA Finals appearances (including five-straight from 2015-2019), the NBA’s single-season wins record (73), an NBA Coach of the Year award (2015-16), and five of the six winningest seasons in franchise history. He owns an overall playoff record of 93-34 (.732), the highest winning percentage among NBA head coaches all-time that have coached a minimum of 25 postseason games.

Named the 2022-24 USA Basketball Men’s National Team head coach, Kerr will lead the USA National Team in 2022-24, which will include all USA Men’s National Team training camps, and, if the USA qualifies, the 2023 FIBA World Cup that is scheduled to be held in the Philippines, Japan, and Indonesia from Aug. 25-Sept. 10, 2023, and the 2024 Summer Olympic Games that is scheduled for July 26-Aug. 11 in Paris, France. Kerr most recently served as an assistant coach for the 2017-21 USA Basketball Men’s National Team and was part of Gregg Popovich’s gold medalist coaching staff for the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, and the 2019 USA National Team that competed in the FIBA World Cup in China. By helping the USA claim gold at the Tokyo Olympics, Kerr became the first USA Basketball National Team coach to also have earned a gold medal as a player in a FIBA senior level competition, having won gold at the 1986 World Cup.

Kerr, who won five NBA championships during a 15-year playing career, now owns nine championships as either a player or coach, becoming the first to win at least three NBA titles as a player and three as a coach. Kerr is just the third coach in NBA history to win three championships in his first four seasons at the helm, joining Phil Jackson (1991, 1992, 1993) and John Kundla (1949, 1950, 1952) as the only coaches to do so.

With Kerr at the helm, the Warriors became the first team in NBA history to win at least 65 games in three consecutive campaigns (67 victories in 2014-15, 73 in 2015-16, and 67 in 2016-17). Golden State’s success also extended to the postseason. The Warriors became the fourth franchise to win three-or-more titles in the span of four seasons, joining the Boston Celtics (1959-69), Chicago Bulls (1991-93, 1996-98) and Los Angeles Lakers (1949-54, 1985-88, 2000-02). In the 2017 postseason, Golden State posted a 16-1 (.941) record, the best single-season playoff record in league history that included a playoff-record 15-game win streak.

In 2014-15, Kerr engineered the most successful campaign of any first-year coach in NBA history en route to Golden State’s first title in 40 years, posting a then-franchise-record 67 victories and establishing NBA records for most wins and highest winning percentage (67-15, .817) by a first-year head coach. The Warriors saw a 16-game improvement in 2014-15 over the previous season (51-31 in 2013-14), an NBA record for the biggest improvement by a 50-win team in league history. Kerr followed his inaugural campaign by winning the 2015-16 NBA Coach of the Year Award for leading the Warriors to an NBA-record 73 regular-season wins in 2015-16 (73-9, .890), eclipsing the previous mark of 72 set by a Chicago Bulls squad in 1995-96 that featured Kerr in a reserve role. In addition to the single-season wins record, the Warriors set new league marks for single-season road wins (34), consecutive wins to begin a season (24) and consecutive regular-season home wins (54).

Originally named to the position on May 19, 2014, Kerr is the 25th head coach in franchise history and the 20th since the team moved to the West Coast in 1962. He is the fourth Warriors coach to win an NBA title, joining Eddie Gottlieb (1947), George Senesky (1956) and Alvin Attles (1975). He is also just the third coach in franchise history to be named Coach of the Year, joining Alex Hannum (1963-64) and Don Nelson (1991-92). Twice Kerr and his coaching staff were named to coach the Western Conference All-Star Team (2015, 2017).

Kerr owns 34 years of NBA experience as a player (15), coach (eight), television analyst (eight) and front office executive (three). As president of basketball operations and general manager of the Phoenix Suns (2007-10), the club posted a 155-91 (.630) record and earned a pair of playoff berths, including a trip to the 2010 Western Conference Finals.

Having been on teams that made the playoffs in 13 of his 15 seasons, while playing in 11 of those (missed other two due to injury), Kerr is one of only 26 players in NBA history to win five championships, earning three rings with Chicago and two with San Antonio. A key reserve for Chicago during the team’s three-peat championship run from 1996-98, Kerr famously hit the game-winning, title-clinching shot in Game 6 of the 1997 NBA Finals. He won his fourth consecutive championship in 1999 with the San Antonio Spurs to become one of only two non-Boston Celtics to win four-straight NBA titles (joining Frank Saul, 1951-54). His fifth ring came in his second stint with the Spurs during his final NBA campaign in 2002-03.

The NBA’s all-time three-point percentage leader, having converted on 45.4 percent (726-of-1599) of his attempts from long range, Kerr amassed career averages of 6.0 points, 1.8 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 910 regular-season games with the Phoenix Suns, Cleveland Cavaliers, Orlando Magic, Chicago Bulls, San Antonio Spurs (twice) and Portland Trail Blazers.

Kerr was originally selected by the Phoenix Suns in the second round (50th overall) of the 1988 NBA Draft out of the University of Arizona, where he capped his collegiate career as a senior in 1988 by helping lead the Wildcats to their first Final Four appearance. An All-Pac 10 guard in both 1986 and 1988, he remains the school’s career leader in three-point field goal percentage (57.3 percent). During his playing career, Kerr played for some of the most successful coaches in the history of the game, including Phil Jackson, Popovich, Lenny Wilkens, Cotton Fitzsimmons and Lute Olson. Born in Beirut, Lebanon, and raised in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Kerr was a ballboy in 1978 and 1979 at UCLA, where his late father, Malcolm, was a professor.

As a broadcaster, Kerr has served two different four-year stints as a game analyst on TNT’s award-winning NBA coverage. In addition to a full slate of regular-season games, he also worked TNT’s marquee events, including the NBA All-Star Game, playoffs and conference finals. During his most recent stint in broadcasting, beginning in 2010, Kerr also served as an analyst for NCAA Tournament and Final Four coverage on Turner Sports and CBS.

Kerr earned a degree in general studies from Arizona with an emphasis in history, sociology and English in 1988. He is an advocate for commonsense gun safety laws, supporting such organizations as the Brady campaign, Sandy Hook Promise, March For Our Lives, and Giffords. Kerr also helps fundraise for Oakland Promise, an initiative launched by Mayor Libby Schaaf and the Oakland Unified School District in 2016 that aims to triple the number of Oakland high school graduates who complete college by the year 2024. In October 2014, Steve and Margot Kerr committed $1 million to the University of Arizona to assist with the McKale Memorial Center renovation and future academic facility enhancements.

Born on September 27, 1965, Steve and his wife, Margot, have two sons, Nicholas and Matthew, and one daughter, Madeleine. Nick received his degree from the University of San Diego in 2015 and completed his graduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley, where he played as a walk-on for the Bears’ basketball team for one season. Nick is an assistant coach for the Warriors G League affiliate Santa Cruz Warriors, after serving as an assistant video coordinator for Golden State in 2020-21. Madeleine received her law degree from UC Berkeley, where she was a member of the volleyball team, and is now a lawyer in San Francisco. Matthew is a graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts and has written for such TV shows as ‘Ted Lasso’ and ‘Clone High.’
