The Golden State Warriors announced on Tuesday the team have agreed a contract extension with head coach Steve Kerr, but as per their policy the details of the deal were not released.

Kerr signed a five-year $25 million deal when he took the reins in 2014 and has led the Warriors to three NBA Championships in the last four seasons. They also won the Western Conference title for four consecutive seasons and it was only in 2016 that they failed to complete the double — losing to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the final.

The Warriors head coach’s achievement makes him only the third coach in NBA history alongside Phil Jackson (1991, 1992, 1993) and John Kundla (1949, 1950, 1951) to win three titles in their first four seasons at the helm. Kerr’s playoff record which stands at 63-20 (.759) is the highest winning percentage in NBA history among head coaches who have coached a minimum of 25 playoff games, as per Elias Sports Bureau.

“We’re excited to have Steve under contract and poised to lead our team for the next several years,” Warriors President of Basketball Operations/General Manager Bob Myers said on Tuesday. “Under his guidance, we’ve been fortunate enough to win three NBA titles in four years and his ability to thrive in all facets of his job is certainly a primary reason for our success. He’s a terrific coach, but more importantly an incredible human being.”

The 52-year-old has a total of eight NBA championships, five of which were won during a 15-year playing career. Kerr’s achievement with the Warriors makes him the first person in NBA history to win at least three as a player and as many as a coach.

Kerr is the 25th head coach of the Warriors franchise and the fourth to win an NBA title, joining Eddie Gottlieb (1947), George Senesky (1956) and Alvin Attles (1975). He is also only the third coach in the franchise's history to be named Coach of the Year — 2015-16 — joining Alex Hannum (1963-64) and Don Nelson (1991-92), according to

LeBron James also praised coach Kerr during the NBA Finals stating he is the one that brings the star-studded Warriors team together. The Los Angeles Lakers’ newest recruit had one of the best views of Kerr’s work as he lost three NBA Finals’ to the Bay Area franchise in the last four seasons.

"I could sit here and say today — ‘Listen, Golden State is a great team …’ — I didn’t even mention their head coach," James said, as quoted on Sportsnet. "Their head coach is the one who kind of puts it all together, makes it all flow. To be able to put egos and the right position and spot on the floor where everybody feels good about the outcome and things of that nature — when it comes to team sports, that’s something that you would hope that you could be a part of."
