The Indiana Pacers signed head coach Frank Vogel to a contract extension Monday.

Vogel has led the Pacers to a 82-56 record in two-plus years as head coach. Indiana had the fifth-best record in the NBA and reached the Eastern Conference semifinals.

"This is a good deal for Frank and the franchise," said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh in a news release. "Frank has done a great job turning our team around since he became coach and deserves the chance to continue the work he and his staff have started."

"I'm honored that Donnie, Kevin (General Manager Pritchard) and Mr. Simon (owner Herb Simon) have such belief and faith in me to be their coach in the foreseeable future. We've established a great connection with our community the last two years, both on and off the court and I look forward to continuing that," Vogel said in the release.

Terms of the contract extension were not released.
