Si Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr ang magiging bagong coach ng US national men’s basketball team.

Kaya naman, siya ang magmamando ng koponan sakaling makapasok ang team USA sa 2023 FIBA World Cup at 2024 Paris Olympics.

Si Kerr ay naging assistant coach ng outgoing US basketball team coach na si Gregg Popovich.

“It was a surprise, to be honest with you,” saad ni Kerr sa isang press conference. “Even though we spent the whole summer together in Tokyo … it was just a wonderful experience to be part of USA Basketball. But you just don’t stop and think, ‘Oh, maybe I’ll be the head coach.’ It’s not something you even dream about. So you don’t even afford yourself that time and say, ‘I wonder if …’ You just put your head down, you work — when this call came, it gave me chills. It’s an opportunity of a lifetime, and I can’t wait to work with all these guys.”

Ang mga assistant coach naman ni Kerr ay sina Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, Phoenix coach Monty Williams at Gonzaga coach Mark Few.

Bilang NBA coach ng Warriors, tinulungan ni Kerr ang koponan na magkampeon ng tatlong beses sa NBA.

At bilang coach ng team USA, isa sa plano ni Kerr ay makalaro sa national team si Stephen Curry.
