Now that the Warriors have their head coach, it's time to start putting together the rest of the coaching staff and Steve Kerr has some ideas.

Kerr is reportedly eyeing San Antonio Spurs shooting coach Chip Engelland.

Marc Stein of ESPN.com writes that the Warriors want to bring Engelland's expertise to the Bay Area:

"Now one of Engelland's biggest fans on the planet is the new head coach of the Golden State Warriors. Steve Kerr succeeded Engelland as the top perimeter gun at Pacific Palisades High School in Southern California and, according to NBA coaching sources, wants to bring him to the Bay Area to sit on the Warriors' bench.

"The Spurs have managed to fend off all past interest in Engelland and presumably will fight hard to hang onto him now."

Engelland is currently in his seventh year as the Spurs shooting coach and was director of player development for the Nuggets for two seasons before joining San Antonio.
