Coach Pop's Wife Erin Dies After Lengthy Illness

Multiple news outlets are reporting the death of Erin Popovich, the wife of more than 40 years of Spurs coach Gregg Popovich. 

Erin battled an undisclosed illness for a long time before ultimately succumbing today. Coach Pop was always very private about his personal life, except one story about his wife getting angry with him over his treatment of sideline reporters!

Spurs GM R.C. Buford gave this statement to Bleacher Report "She was a strong, wonderful, kind, intelligent woman who provided love, support and humor to all of us." 

Our thoughts go out to Coach Pop, as well as his kids, and grandkids over this tremendous loss.

Pop's status for tomorrow night's game and the remainder of the playoffs is not known.
