Our sincerest condolences to the Popovich Family. Gregg Popovich’s wife, Erin, has died . Based on a statement released by the San Antonio Spurs. Erin died Wednesday, but the reason for death is unknown at this time. The information comes as a shock to the players and fans, though it is being reported she had been sick for a prolonged period.
Coach Popovich hadn’t said anything publicly. Gregg and Erin have been married for 4 decades and have two children and two grandchildren. Spurs GM R.C. Buford says: “‘We mourn the loss of Erin. She was strong, wonderful, kind, intelligent girl who provided love, humor and support to most of us.
The Spurs is scheduled to take on the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of their playoff series Thursday night in San Antonio. Kevin Durant was told the sad news and was at a loss of words. Erin was 67. Rest in Peace, Erin.
