Steve Kerr was named the NBA Coach of the Year today. The 50-year-old coach led the Golden State Warriors to the best regular season record (73-9) in NBA history. Kerr, who missed the first 43 games of the season, received 64 (out of 130) first-place votes. 

Lute Olson, Kerr's college coach at Arizona (he played there from 1983-88), surprised him at a ceremony this afternoon.
