 MIAMI (AP) - Erik Spoelstra has signed a multiyear extension to remain as coach of the Miami Heat.
Team officials confirmed the signing Sunday afternoon. Spoelstra has led the Heat to the past two NBA championships and is 260-134 in his first five seasons in Miami. He had one year left on his existing contract, a deal that the sides agreed to in 2011.
Heat President Pat Riley said last season that the team had no intention of letting Spoelstra go, saying it was his hope that his one-time protege would be with the team ``for a long, long time.''
Spoelstra is one of only 12 men in NBA history with multiple championships as a coach, and only seven others have collected rings in back-to-back years.
