Steve Kerr’s tenure in charge of the Golden State Warriors has been glorious, to say the least.
We’re talking about a guy who’s coached a team on its way to six trips to the NBA Finals, including five in a row.
His team set a new record for the most wins in a single regular-season campaign, and they’ve won four championships in nine years.
But all good teams eventually come to an end, and Kerr’s stint in the Bay area won’t be the exception to that rule.
As a matter of fact, NBA insider Ric Bucher recently revealed on 95.7 The Game that he wouldn’t be shocked if this were Kerr’s final year as their coach.

Bucher explained that — according to things he heard last season — Kerr was leaning toward following Bob Myers’ steps and walking away from the organization, adding that both he and the franchise would be on the same page about putting an end to his stint there.
Kerr has often been rumored to be next in line to take over Gregg Popovich once the San Antonio Spurs legend is done with coaching.
And while Pop hasn’t hinted at retiring, even Kerr admitted that this is a short-memory business, explaining that no one’s job is safe in the league, not even after winning multiple rings with the same franchise.
The Warriors still believe they can win another ring with Stephen Curry as their centerpiece, but this might be the dynasty’s last dance if Kerr doesn’t come back after the season.NEXT: Draymond Green Reveals The 'Most Ridiculous' Player Drafted Before Him
