Kerr to Assist Popovich in USA National Basketball Team

NEW YORK – Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr will assist San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich in the United States national basketball team, USA Basketball, the governing body for basketball in the US, announced on Thursday.

Popovich, 69, named his friend and former Spur as assistant coach for next two summers, along with Indiana Pacers head coach Nate McMillan and Villanova University head coach Jay Wright.

Popovich and his new team of assistants will be leading the US National Team in the 2019 FIBA World Cup in China, and the 2020 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

“This is an incredible opportunity and one I’m extremely grateful for,” said Kerr in a statement, and added that working with “former coaches and a mentor, is a tremendous honor.”

Kerr, 53, was in the US team that won the 1986 World Championship title while he was playing for the University of Arizona team.

Wright, 56, has a long career working with the USA Basketball, and coached a USA Basketball team of college students in Pan American Games of 2007.

“This will be the opportunity of a lifetime,” Wright said.

McMillan, 54, also has had a long association with the USA Basketball and was assistant coach from 2006-2012, winning two Olympic gold medals and a world championship along with former head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
