Cal Women's Basketball Video: Steve Kerr Gives Lindsay Gottlieb His Endorsement

Calling himself a "transplanted Cal fan," Warriors coach laments Bears' loss but congratulates Lindsay Gottlieb

Warriors coach Steve Kerr has lots on his plate right now, with Game 6 of the NBA Finals set for Thursday.

But Kerr took time during his news conference Wednesday to congratulate Lindsay Gottlieb, the Cal women's basketball coach who was hired to be an assistant on John Beilein's staff with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Kerr has a familiarity with Gottlieb because two of his kids, daughter Maddy (volleyball) and son Nick (basketball) studied and played sports for the Golden Bears. "I'm a transplanted Cal fan," said Kerr, who played college basketball at Arizona.
