Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich Gives No Indication of NBA Return

While Gregg Popovich plans on coaching Team USA at the FIBA Basketball World Cup this summer, he has left no indication that he will return as the head coach of the San Antonio Spurs next season.

After the Spurs lost a heartbreaker in Game 7 against the Denver Nuggets, Popovich avoided all questions regarding his NBA coaching return. Popovich just coached out his final year of his current deal with the franchise. The 70-year old coach has been at the helm of the Spurs since 1996.

“I’m a head coach in the NBA. I don’t think about what that means in the future,” said Popovich following his team’s Game 7 defeat.

In his time with the Spurs, Popovich has won three NBA Coach of the Year awards and helped lead the Spurs to five NBA championships. He also coached at four NBA All-Star Games. Popovich currently ranks third (1245) on the all-time head coach wins list, trailing Lenny Wilkins by 87 wins and Don Nelson by 90. Realistically, Coach Pop has a very definite opportunity to pass the two legendary coaches if he continues to coach for two more seasons. Popovich is also sixth all time in coach’s winning percentage (68.4%) and second among those to have coached at least 1,000 NBA Games.

One source close to the Spurs believes there is “no doubt” that Popovich will be back next season.
