The Miami Heat have agreed to a long-term contract extension with their head coach Erik Spoelstra, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The 48-year-old Spoelstra, who is entering his 12th season as the Heat’s head coach, had just one year left on his current deal.

Since becoming the Heat’s head coach in 2008, Spoelstra has amassed a record of 523-363 with a winning percentage of 59 percent. He has also led the Heat to four NBA Finals berths as well as two NBA championships, which came during the 2011-12 season and the 2012-13 season.

Spoelstra is currently the NBA’s second-longest tenured coach, sitting just behind Gregg Popovich of the San Antonio Spurs.
