San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich is unsure what the future holds for him.

“I don’t know the answer,” the Spurs coach, who has five titles, told The New York Times’ Marc Stein on Wednesday night when asked if he would keep coaching next season.

I think it’s more than reasonable to assume Popovich is nearing the end of the road. He’s been with the Spurs for seemingly forever, and has won an insane amount of games. (RELATED: NBA Star Comes Out With Spirited Defense Of Female Coaches In The Game)

He will without a doubt be remembered as one of the greatest coaches to ever pick up a clipboard. Pop currently has more than 1,2000 wins, which is just a mind-boggling amount.

At some point, everybody wants to hang it up and move on in life. That’s just the way it works. He’s been in the NBA for decades, and maybe he’s just looking forward to a few cold beers on the beach.

Of course, this isn’t to say he doesn’t return in 2019 for the start of next season. He very well could. I think it’s clear that Popovich just doesn’t know yet.

I’m sure he’s made more than enough money to relax the rest of the way if that’s the route he chooses. Either way, he’s had one hell of a run.
