The Miami Heat signed two-time NBA champion head coach Erik Spoelstra to a contract extension on Sunday.

The Miami Heat rewarded coach Erik Spoelstra with a multi-year extension on Sunday.

The Miami Herald's Joseph Goodman points out Spoelstra was heading into the 2013-14 NBA season on the last year of his contract. He writes,"Solidifying Spoelstra's future was a significant first step toward brining stability to the equation" taking into accout the Big Three of MVP LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh having to make significant contract decisions at the end of 2013-14. 

On the other hand, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel confirms terms of Spoelstra's new contract were not disclosed by the Heat as the team does not divulge these details pertaining to coaches or members of the front office

However, ESPN reports Spoelstra is due for a "significant raise" of his base salary of $3 million. His new deal "may come with a role in the team's front office," per the update

Winderman emphasizes the Heat head coach will continue to have a say in personnel decisions. 

Spoelstra's extension coincides with several moves made within the team's coaching staff last Saturday. Former Heat player Juwan Howard and Dan Craig, a close friend of Spoelstra, were given full-time positions as assistant coaches. 

Meanwhile, Keith Askins and Chad Kammerer, who were previously on Spoelstra's coaching staff, moved to personnel positions. Spoelstra is represented by Creative Artists Agency, which also represents Wade and Bosh. 

Spoelstra has been the coach of Miami for five seasons, guiding the team to playoff appearances each and every time on his way to a 260-134 overall head coaching record. Under his guidance, the Heat have appeared in three consecutive NBA Finals appearances.

They have won back-to-back NBA titles, punctuated by a 27-winning game winning streak last season -- the second-longest in NBA history. They are gunning for a three-peat in 2013-14. 

With "Coach Spo's" impressive track record, no less than Miami Heat team president Pat Riley said he wants him to be with the team for the long haul. He said,"I want Spo here for a long, long time."

Rockets stay unbeaten after defeating Heat

Nov 4 2014 9:34pm CST | Source: Sportsnet.ca

MIAMI — There’s no mystery to Houston’s game plan. The Rockets shoot a ton of 3-pointers, feed Dwight Howard when the long ball isn’t there, and run when they can. So far, it’s been foolproof. James Harden was one rebound away from a triple-double, Howard scored 26 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, and the Rockets stayed unbeaten by beating the Miami Heat 108-91 on Tuesday night. "We’ve started great," Howard said. "We j ...

Luol Deng Won't Replace LeBron James, but He's a Critical Piece for Miami Heat

Nov 4 2014 9:13pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

Back in June, Miami Heat president Pat Riley told reporters the addition of Luol Deng was "one of the most important free-agent signings that we have ever had in the history of the franchise." But for Heat fans who'd been spoiled by two championships and the promise of more, Deng was little more than a two-year, $20 million consolation prize (wherein the second year is at the player's option). He was the guy Riley brought in to be the new small forward. Not the new ...

MIAMI — So much for Miami needing time to find its way with a rebuilt roster. The Heat are the last unbeaten team in the Eastern Conference.
