Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich Likely to Retire Following 2021-22 Season

Gregg Popovich may be entering his final year of coaching.

According to numerous sources close to the situation, there is allegedly a growing belief that the legendary San Antonio Spurs head coach will retire following the 2021-22 season.

Popovich, who has most recently stepped down from coaching USA Basketball after a gold medal run in the Tokyo Olympics, has remained non-committal to his coaching future past this year. All that Popovich has said on the matter is that he is excited to coach what will be a very young and explosive Spurs team this season.

If Popovich is in fact to retire following the season, the organization has a number of potential replacements. Former assistant Will Hardy was originally believed to be the heir apparent, but he moved onto the Boston Celtics bench this past offseason. Former Spurs legends Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili have also been floated in the conversation, while Becky Hammon is expected to receive serious consideration as well. Hammon has been the team’s second-longest assistant and has received a number of head coaching interviews in recent years.

Popovich is currently third all-time on the NBA’s all-time coaching wins list, only 22 wins away from Lenny Wilkens and 25 wins away from matching Don Nelson’s all-time mark. The five-time NBA champion is also inside the top-10 for career winning percentage.

A true legend of the game!
