Riley signs contract extension; terms undisclosed
MIAMI -- Miami Heat coach Pat Riley has signed a contract extension, the team announced Sunday without specifying any terms of the deal, including whether it addressed his role as coach or team president.
Riley did not address the extension on Sunday, when the Heat defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 97-70. Since taking over for Stan Van Gundy, who resigned as coach last month, Riley is 8-3 with Miami.
He is 362-273 in parts of nine seasons with the Heat, whom he's been with since the 1995-96 season, when he signed a 10-year contact to be the team's coach and president. He led the Heat to six playoff appearances and resigned as coach shortly before the 2003-04 season, turning the job over to Van Gundy.
Riley led the "Showtime" Los Angeles Lakers to four NBA championships during the 1980s.
