Steve Kerr allegedly paid per Woj . Yes, he's already richer than you, but as far as the market is concerned, he's underperforming for a coach who has produced what he has. Three-time NBA Championship coach Steve Kerr concludes a contract extension that will make him one of the highest paid coaches in the NBA, says league sources ESPN.

Kerr has now piloted the Warriors to three championships, coming 48 minutes ahead of a fourth and having the best regular season in the history of the sport. He has just completed the fourth year of a $ 25 million deal. That's enough to pay the rent, but it's not even in the top five of the coaches in the league.
Kerr's average salary is $ 5 million a year. There is no other way to say it: the warriors get an incredible coach with an amazing value. He earns as much as Mike D & # 39; Antoni, Luke Walton (who has just finished his second season as NBA head coach) and Fred Hoiberg (who has just finished third). It's not the lowest salary in the league, but it's less than half of people like Gregg Popovich and Doc Rivers – who have human resources control over their teams. In principle, Kerr's deal was a required value at the time of signing, but now he has exceeded that salary due to his performance.
Due to the fact that it's a faux pas within the league for a coach who goes into last season from a deal without extra time, the Warriors take a step to incarcerate their husband and pay him what he's worth now is.
Without knowing the details of Kerr's deal, we can extrapolate Kerr's annual salary to some $ 9 million with some matting math. Popovich makes an average $ 11 million – the highest in the league – Rivers makes $ 10 million, Tom Thibodeau makes $ 8 million (and additional bonuses of about $ 3 million), and Scott Brooks makes $ 7 million.
Kerr has no personnel control for the Warriors, so he could not make money for Popovich, but it's absolutely fair that he at least comes close.
