Exclusive Golden State Warriors Introduce New Coaching Roster with Terry Stotts and Jerry Stackhouse Joining as Top Assistants

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA – After some recent staff changes, Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr has finalized his coaching lineup for the upcoming season.

Veteran coach Terry Stotts and former NBA All-Star player Jerry Stackhouse have been officially announced as the newest additions to Kerr’s coaching staff. Both are expected to join Kerr on the front bench, alongside Kris Weems, who will be filling the third and final spot. Weems was promoted to the front bench last summer, and these new additions have necessitated moving longtime assistant Bruce “Q” Fraser back to the second bench after three seasons up front.

Stotts, with 13 years of head-coaching experience including nine seasons with the Portland Trail Blazers, brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Warriors. His recent stint as an assistant coach with the Milwaukee Bucks was short-lived due to personal differences, but now he is set to step into a top assistant role with Golden State.

On the other hand, Stackhouse, a former NBA All-Star turned coach, has had a varied coaching career. With experience coaching in the G League and collegiate level, Stackhouse adds a different perspective and energy to the Warriors’ coaching staff. His hiring comes in the wake of assistant Dejan “Deki” Milojević’s passing earlier this year, creating a vacancy that Stackhouse will now fill.

Kerr’s decision to bring in coaching veterans like Stotts and Stackhouse reflects a desire to strengthen the team’s coaching expertise and leadership. With Stotts’ experience and Stackhouse’s tenacity, the Warriors are looking to cultivate a stronger coaching staff for the upcoming season.

As the Warriors gear up for the new season, the additions of Stotts and Stackhouse are poised to bring fresh insights and strategies to the team, setting the stage for an exciting season ahead.
