Brett Brown agrees to two-year extension with 76ers
Friday December 11th, 2015

Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown has agreed to a two-year contract extension, the team announced.

The deal was first reported by Yahoo sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Philadelphia added Hall of Famer Jerry Colangelo as the team’s special advisor to the managing general partner and chairman of basketball operations on Monday. Colangelo hinted at a contract extension for Brown during his introduction by the team.

Brown is the eighth coach to head the Sixers since Larry Brown left the team in 2003. He signed a four-year deal in the summer of 2013. The new deal is expected to keep him through the 2018–2019 season.
