The Utah Jazz has rewarded head coach Quin Snyder with a long-term contract extension, the NBA team announced on Sunday.
Utah and Snyder agreed to terms on a new contract that will build on the two years he has remaining on his current deal after the 52-year-old's appointment in 2014.
Snyder is in his sixth season with the Jazz and has helped Utah reach the playoffs in each of the last three years.

"I've really enjoyed working with Quin and appreciate the collaboration and innovation he's brought to our franchise," said Jazz president Steve Starks. "He is one of the most respected coaches in the NBA and we are excited to solidify his leadership of the Jazz for years to come.
"Quin has helped create and lead a special team culture on and off the court. His focus on our players' development and the day-to-day environment that he and his coaches have put in place is an excellent foundation."
The Jazz have high hopes and showed that in their moves during the offseason.
Utah quietly had one of the better offseasons in the league after acquiring Mike Conley via trade and signed Bojan Bogdanovic in free agency, while retaining the team's pillars — Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert.
The Jazz is just one season removed from a fifth-place finish in the competitive Western Conference and arguably got better across the board ahead of 2019–20.
Utah will open up regular-season play when it hosts the Oklahoma City Thunder on October 23.
