The Brooklyn Nets haven’t always made it easy on him but head coach Jacque Vaughn has done very well during his first season on the job.
Under previous head coach Steve Nash, the team was just 2-5 and then Vaughn came onto the job early in the season and they have been 32-19 since.
A lot has changed for the team throughout the year but Vaughn has been steady, collected, and focused on making the team the best it can be.

Because of that, he just got an extension on his job.
It is being reported that the Nets and Vaughn have agreed to a multi-year contract extension.
This new contract agreement will keep Vaughn in the position through the 2026-27 season.
His original deal was set to expire after this season but included a team option for 2023-24.
Vaughn took on the head coaching position under a black cloud of drama and was able to turn things around and help the Nets become the fifth team in the East.
Of course, he’s had to battle not only a disappointed fanbase but the controversies of Kyrie Irving, the injuries and departure of Kevin Durant, the lackluster output of Ben Simmons, and the young players who are looking to leave a mark in Brooklyn.
Vaughn was a longtime assistant and was respected by many stars and coaches before he became the leader of the Nets.
After Nash’s firing, Vaughn was named as the interim replacement but was then given the full-time position at the start of November, which was right around the time the team began to change its fate and garner more wins.NEXT: The Nets Have Announced A New Contract Deal For Their HC
