BOSTON (AP) -The Boston Celtics have extended the contract of coach Doc Rivers, who led the team to its first championship in 22 years.
Rivers guided the Celtics to a 66-16 regular season record and the franchise's 17th title last season. It was the biggest single-season turnaround in league history, following Boston's 24 wins the year before.
Celtics general manager Danny Ainge says Rivers is the man to lead the team ``now and in the future.'' Rivers has a 168-160 record in four seasons as Celtics coach.
The team did not disclose terms of the deal.
