It comes as great news for Fenerbahce fans as they look to build on what has been a historic season, that featured a first ever Euroleague Final Four earlier in the month.
The 55-year-old, Serbian tactician has been at the helm of Fenerbahce since 2013 and has brought near instant success to the Asian side of Istanbul, winning the Turkish Cup in his first season.
Previously, Obradovic earned legendary status at Panathinaikos, where during his extraordinary 13-year tenure in Athens, won 11 Greek League titles, seven Greek Cups and five Euroleague, a feat unmatched by a coach anywhere in Europe.
He left Panathinaikos in 2012 before heading to Fenerbahce a year later.
And currently, they are deadlocked at 1-1 in the quarter-finals of the TBL Playoffs with their bitter rivals from across the continent, Galatasaray. Game three is Tuesday.
