Trail Blazers Extend Head Coach Terry Stotts

Christopher Trotman/Getty Images(PORTLAND, Ore.) --  The Portland Trail Blazers announced that they have signed head coach Terry Stotts to a multiyear contract extension.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.  Stotts led the Trail Blazers to a 54-28 record this past season.  The team made the playoffs for the first time since 2011, but they fell to the San Antonio Spurs in five games in the Western Conference semifinals.

"Terry has done an outstanding job during his first two years with the organization," general manager Neil Olshey said in a statement. "This extension illustrates our confidence in him as our head coach as well as the Portland Trail Blazers' continued commitment to building a model of consistency and stability."

In two seasons with the Blazers, Stotts has posted an 87-77 record.  He was also an assistant coach with the Dallas Mavericks for four seasons prior to arriving in Portland, helping the Mavericks win the NBA title in 2011.
