Los Angeles’ Executive Vice President/General Manager Penny Toler announced today the franchise has resigned head coach Brian Agler to a multi-year contract extension.

In a press release, Toler stated this on Agler:

“I am extremely excited that Head Coach Brian Agler will have a long future with the Sparks Organization. As I stated back in 2015 when we first signed him, he is a proven winner and continues to demonstrate this repeatedly. Not many organizations can say that they have a coach that has won four Championships in three different professional destinations (2 ABL Columbus Quest, 1 with Seattle Strom & 1 with the Sparks). In addition to the players, Coach Agler is a huge piece of the Sparks success. I look forward to working with him for years to come.”

Rightfully so, Agler is excited for what is to come with the Sparks organization:

“I'm very excited to continue to coach the LA Sparks. I've appreciated working for the ownership group, led by five-time NBA Champion Earvin “Magic” Johnson, Mark Walter, Stan Kasten, Todd Boehly, Robert L. Patton Jr. and Eric Holoman. Additionally, Penny Toler and I have a great working relationship which I've enjoyed and glad we are going to work together in the future. Most importantly, I love how our team and its core group have grown together and the relationships and the winning culture that we have developed. I am fortunate to be a part of this.”
