Miami Heat, Head Coach Erik Spoelstra Agree to Terms on Extension

One of the longest-tenured head coaches in the NBA is not going anywhere anytime soon.

Over the weekend, the Miami Heat and Erik Spoelstra have agreed to a long-term contract extension. The 48-year old coach still has one season on his current deal before his extension kicks in.

Set to begin his 12th season in Miami since replacing Pat Riley in 2008, Spoelstra is the second-longest-tenured active coach in the league, only trailing San Antonio’s Gregg Popovich. The financial terms of the new contract have not been revealed, but the extension will keep Spoelstra under team control through the 2024-25 season.

Through his tenure, Spoelstra has accumulated a .590 winning percentage during the regular season and a .602 winning mark in the playoffs. He led the Heat Big-3 of Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh to four straight NBA Finals berths, which included two championship victories in 2012 and 2013.

The Heat look to return to their winning ways as they added Jimmy Butler to the fold over the offseason.
