George Karl Hired by Sacramento Kings as Head Coach

The Sacramento Kings and George Karl are progressing on a four-year contract worth between $4 million to $5 million a season to become head coach of the Sacramento Kings.

Karl’s deal would include a team option on the final year of the contract in the 2017-18 season, sources said. There are still details in the contract that need to be ironed out before it can be finalized, league sources said.

Kings general manager Pete D’Allessandro and Karl, who have history together in Denver, spoke at length several times in the past few days to solidify a deal, sources said.

Karl, 63, has won 1,131 regular-season games as an NBA coach, including stops with Cleveland, Golden State, Seattle, Milwaukee and Denver.
