The Milwaukee Bucks announced a three-year contract extension with coach Jason Kidd on Tuesday.

Kidd is now signed with the team through the 2020 season. The extension is worth over $15 million, The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported last week.

“I greatly appreciate the confidence that our owners have placed in me by signing me to this extension,” Kidd said in a statement. “We have a hard-working group of coaches that want to teach our young players and help them reach their full potential. We still have work to do but we’re committed to the goal of building a team that consistently competes for titles.”

After a one-season stint with the Brooklyn Nets, Kidd has coached the Bucks since 2014. Milwaukee made the playoffs in Kidd’s first season with a 41–41 record, but failed to qualify this year after going 33–49.
