The Boston Celtics have signed head coach Brad Stevens to a contract extension, the team announced today.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed, per team policy.

“Brad is one of the most intelligent and hard-working coaches in the game today,” said Boston Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge. “More importantly, his character and integrity have contributed to a culture that we all highly value here. Brad is a great teammate, and a leader people want to follow. We are honored to have him with us as we continue to pursue our next championship.”

Stevens, 43, has a coaching record of 318-245 in a little over six seasons with the Celtics.

This season, the Celtics will make the playoffs for the sixth consecutive year, the franchise’s longest streak since 2007-2008 to 2012-2013.

Stevens becomes the second coach in the “bubble” to receive a contract extension today, joining Nate McMillan of the Indiana Pacers.
