SAN ANTONIO - Gregg Popovich has agreed to a multi-year contract extension to continue coaching the San Antonio Spurs.

The Spurs announced the extension Wednesday, but did not disclose the terms of the agreement. However, Yahoo Sports is reporting that it will extend his contract by "four to five years."

Popovich, 65, has coached the Spurs to five NBA titles since becoming the team's coach in 1996-97.

The Spurs won their first championship since 2007 in June when they defeated the Miami Heat in five games in the NBA Finals.
