Mike Budenholzer, the head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks, has signed a multi-year contract extension.
Mike Budenholzer, who led the Milwaukee Bucks to their first NBA title in 50 years last season, inked a multiyear contract extension with the team on Tuesday.
Budenholzer and the Bucks have agreed to a three-year contract extension, according to league sources. Details of the arrangement were not confirmed by the team.
Budenholzer, who was entering the final year of his contract, will now be with the team through the 2024-25 season.
Bucks owners Marc Lasry, Wes Edens, and Jamie Dinan issued a statement saying, “What an incredible journey we’ve been on and winning the NBA championship this season makes us appreciate how difficult it is to win and how grateful we are to have the best players and coaches in place to get the job done.”
“As we work together to compete for and win championships, Mike’s strong leadership, coaching skills, commitment to player development, and adaptability have been vital. We’re happy to sign Bud to this agreement because of the job he’s done with [general manager]Jon Horst and [team president]Peter Feigin.”
Budenholzer, a two-time NBA Coach of the Year, has a 162-65 regular-season record as the team’s head coach since coming in Milwaukee in 2018. He has a 31-17 postseason record with the Bucks, including a title victory over the Phoenix Suns in July.
Budenholzer guided the Atlanta Hawks to the playoffs in four of his five seasons there before joining the Bucks. With the team, he had a 213-197 record.
