Gregg Popovich has given no indication to San Antonio that he won’t be back next season
Popovich signed a three-year extension with the Spurs in April, but he’s also widely known to be taking a year-by-year approach at this stage of his career.
While the 70-year-old signed a three-year contract extension in April, he’s also widely known to be taking a year-by-year approach to this stage of his storied career. As of now, a source said Popovich has given no indication to the organization that he won’t be back next season.
As we all know, Popovich is one of the best coaches in NBA history. He has won five NBA championships with the Spurs as head coach and advanced to the NBA playoffs a league-record 22 consecutive years.
This year’s Spurs are going to face an uphill climb to make the playoffs. San Antonio entered Monday with a record of 9-14. It remains to be seen what Popovich ends up doing after his contract ends. He turns 71 in January and has been working with the Spurs since 1988.
It has been a Hall of Fame run for Popovich and he doesn’t have anything else to accomplish in the league. Popovich is still coaching for the love of the game at this point.
