Warriors HC Steve Kerr To Take Indefinite Leave Of Absence


Warriors head coach Steve Kerr will take an indefinite leave of absence from the team as he recovers from offseason surgeries, per a team announcement on Thursday.According to Warriors GM Bob Myers, no timetable is currently in place for Kerr’s return.

Myers added that he’s not going to push Kerr to return until he’s fully recuperated.

When it came down to it, it was Kerr’s decision and Kerr’s decision alone to take the leave of absence.

Assistant Luke Walton has been named the team’s interim coach.

Kerr, 50, led the Golden State Warriors to a 67-15 regular season record and an NBA championship in his first season as an NBA head coach. His hiring followed a 15-season career as an active player in the league, a stint as a television analyst and a run from 2007-2010 as Phoenix Suns general manager.

The team is “hopeful” that Kerr will be back by the start of the season, but again they are making no guarantees about when he will return.
