Bob Lanier coached the Golden State Warriors for 37 games during the 1994–95 NBA season.

The Golden State Warriors are an American professional basketball team based in Oakland, California. The franchise has also been based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, San Francisco and Oakland, California during its existence. The team is a member of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA). The Warriors initially joined the Basketball Association of America (BAA) as the Philadelphia Warriors in 1946, and won the first BAA championship title in the same year under coach Edward Gottlieb. The Warriors later joined the NBA at its foundation in 1949. The Warriors' record was 26–42 in their first NBA season and lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Syracuse Nationals.[1][2] Franklin Mieuli and the Diners Club put together a group of 40 local investors to move the Warriors to San Francisco before the 1962–63 NBA season, with Mieuli eventually buying all the shares of the franchise to keep the team from collapsing and to keep it in the area. The team became the Golden State Warriors and moved to Oakland before the 1971–72 NBA season.[3][4][5] The current coach of the team, Don Nelson, was hired by the Warriors to be the head coach before the 2006–07 NBA season.[6]

There have been 22 head coaches for the Warriors franchise,The franchise won their first NBA championship as the Philadelphia Warriors in the 1956 NBA Finals, and were coached by George Senesky.[3] Their second and most recent title was won as the Golden State Warriors in 1975, under coach Al Attles, who played with and coached the Warriors for 25 seasons.[3][7][8] He is also is the franchise's all-time leader in both regular season and playoff games coached and wins. Neil Johnston leads the franchise in winning percentage for games coached.[9]

Frank McGuire is one of the members of the franchise that has been inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame as coaches, while being the only one to do so that has spent his whole career with the franchise.[10] Alex Hannum and Bill Sharman are the only other members of the franchise that have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.[11][12] Hannum and Don Nelson have both received the NBA Coach of the Year award once.[6][11] Nelson has also been named one of the top 10 coaches in NBA history.[13] Four former players for the Warriors, Attles, Johnston, George Lee, and Senesky went on to coach for the franchise.[8][14][15][16]
