AP -- Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr was formally announced as the next coach of the U.S. men's basketball team.

The announcement was made Monday in San Francisco. It wasn't a very-well-kept secret in recent weeks that the Golden State coach would be taking over for Gregg Popovich.

Kerr will lead the Americans if they qualify into the 2023 Basketball World Cup and the 2024 Paris Olympics. Kerr's assistant coaches will be Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, Phoenix Suns coach Monty Williams and Gonzaga coach Mark Few.
