The end of the road could be coming sooner than you think for future Hall of Fame coach Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs.According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, “Few in his orbit expect Popovich to coach the Spurs beyond the 2020 Summer Olympics, and there always has been the possibility that he could spend the 2019-20 season traveling around the NBA and across the globe, preparing for his national team duties.”Popovich took over as the head coach of the men's national team, replacing Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski, following the 2016 Olympic Games.

Former NBA player Boris Diaw joins the French Marines

How much longer will Gregg Popovich coach the San Antonio Spurs?

11 monthes ago   |   By Yahoo Sports

It's weird to picture the San Antonio Spurs sideline with anyone other than Gregg Popovich patrolling it. While he has trained more than one capable replacement (Popovich's NBA coaching tree is in full bloom around the league), it still would just feel odd.
