The 70-year-old made the news himself by telling reporters that he is currently negotiating a contract with the organization. His previous five-year contract ended with the Spurs' Game-7 loss to the Nuggets in Denver. He is still expected to coach Team USA in the FIBA World Cup come September in China, as well as the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. There have been rumors that the games in Tokyo could be his final stint in the coaching world.
No matter when he decides to officially call it quits, he will go down as one of the best to coach the game, and a first-ballot Hall of Famer. His 1,245 wins are third on the all-time wins list, trailing Don Nelson and Lenny Wilkens. He has led the Spurs to the NBA Playoffs in a league-record 22 consecutive seasons, bringing home five NBA Championships. This was the first season since the Kawhi Leonard fiasco from a season ago, but after dealing him to Toronto and bringing in DeMar DeRozan, Popovich got back to doing what he always does, and that's win.
