Taking over as head coach of the San Antonio Spurs in 1996, Greg Popovich is not only the longest-tenured coach in the NBA, he is the longest-tenured coach in the four major professional North American sports leagues. Doc Rivers is the 2nd-longest-tenured NBA head coach, having assumed the head coaching position in Boston in 2004.
