The Toronto Raptors have signed head coach Nick Nurse to a multiyear contract extension, according to an official team announcement issued on Tuesday.

Nurse, the reigning NBA Coach of the Year, has composed a 111-43 record in two seasons as the head coach, including the Raptors’ first NBA championship, which they won in 2019.

“Our confidence in Nick just continues to grow, and part of that comes from what we’ve experienced together,” Raptors president Masai Ujiri said in a statement.

“The past two seasons have been unlike any other in our team’s history — first, winning our championship, and then navigating a global pandemic and committing long-term to the fight against racism and for social justice. Nick has proved that he can coach on the court and lead in life, and we’re looking forward to accomplishing great things in the future.”
