The Los Angeles Lakers announced Friday that they have extended the contract of head coach Frank Vogel.

The length of the extension was not announced, but longtime NBA journalist Marc Stein reported earlier Friday that the extension would only be for one season.


Vogel, 48, signed a three-year contract before the 2019-20 season.

In his two seasons leading the Lakers, Vogel has a 94-49 record, one division title, one Western Conference championship and one NBA championship in the 2019-20 season.


He has a 398-340 record in his career as a head coach with previous stints with the Indiana Pacers (2010-16) and Orlando Magic (2016-18).
