Erik Spoelstra, the head coach of the Miami Heat, and his wife, Nikki Spoelstra, have completed the legal process of ending their marriage, as reported by the Miami Herald.

“We have made the difficult yet amicable decision to jointly file to formally end our marriage,” the ex-couple said in a joint statement. “We are both grateful for our relationship and remain fully committed to co-parenting our children and continuing to make them our shared priority.

“We appreciate everyone’s support as we move to the next stage of our lives and thank you for respecting our family’s privacy.”

Spoelstra and Nikki, a former Miami Heat dancer, concluded their seven-year marriage. The couple had parted ways in the past few months.
