A day after getting swept by the Golden State Warriors in the Western Conference finals, the Portland Trail Blazers have signed head coach Terry Stotts to a multiyear extension, the team confirmed on Tuesday.

The Trail Blazers finished the 2018-19 season with a 53-29 record, good for third in the Western Conference.

Stotts was hired to be the team’s head coach in 2012 after previously serving as the assistant coach for the Dallas Mavericks.

Under Stotts, the Trail Blazers have made the playoffs in each of their past six seasons. The Trail Blazers’ appearance in the Western Conference finals was the first since 2000.

In seven seasons as head coach of the Trail Blazers, Stotts has amassed a 325-249 record. In the playoffs, the team holds a 19-32 record.

Stotts’ extension comes on the heels of news that star point guard Damian Lillard is expected to receive a $191 million supermax deal to stay in Portland.
