NBA analyst and former Phoenix Suns general manager Steve Kerr has accepted a five-year contract with the Golden State Warriors worth $25 million, according to David Aldridge of TNT.

Kerr was the top candidate for the Warriors and New York Knicks coaching vacancies and was believed to be close to signing a deal with the Knicks this week.

It was reported on Tuesday that the Warriors were making a final push to sway Kerr with a meeting in Oklahoma City on Tuesday.

Kerr has no previous coaching experience but served as general manager of the Phoenix Suns from 2007-10.

The Warriors fired head coach Mark Jackson earlier this month after a first-round playoff loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
