Davidson Coach Explains Why Steph Curry's Jersey Hasn't Been Retired

Back in 2017, Steph Curry went back to his hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina and had his high school jersey retired by Charlotte Christian. 

One day, Curry's Warriors jersey will be hanging from the rafters at Chase Center in San Francisco.

But, believe it or not, his Davidson College jersey still hasn't been retired. And it may take a while before that happens.

Why? Because Curry still hasn't graduated from Davidson.

"I think he's in the process of completing his degree," Davidson head coach Bob McKillop told TMZ on Monday.

Curry was majoring in Sociology when he left Davidson after his junior year to enter the 2009 NBA Draft. The Warriors selected Curry with the No. 7 overall pick and in the 10 years since, he's been a big part of turning the franchise into the NBA's newest dynasty.

But in those 10 years, he still hasn't had a chance to complete his degree.

NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke recently spoke to Curry about this exact topic.

It's understandable that Curry doesn't have time to return to Davidson during the summer. The Warriors have played through mid-June the last four years, and once they are done playing, Curry's promotional obligations reach far and wide.

Maybe when his career comes to an end, he'll have time to return to Davidson and get that diploma.
