Source: Warriors contact Kerr over vacancy
ESPN 412+ SHARES
The Golden State Warriors have reached out to TNT broadcaster Steve Kerr to discuss their coaching vacancy, a league source confirmed to ESPNNewYork.com on Tuesday night.
But now that the Warriors job is open, Kerr feels compelled to at least listen to what Golden State has to say, a source told ESPN.com's J.A. Adande.
Kerr, who lives in San Diego, has several ties to the Warriors' organization, which fired coach Mark Jackson on Tuesday, including strong relationships with Warriors owner Joe Lacob, son Kirk Lacob, who works in Golden State's front office, and Warriors president Rick Welts, with whom Kerr worked closely in Phoenix.
Golden State's contact with Kerr was first reported by the New York Daily News earlier Tuesday.
Kerr and Jackson met to discuss the Knicks' coaching vacancy late last month.
