    San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich looks for a three second call in the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers in March. Popovich has been named NBA coach of the year, making him just the third coach in league history to win the award three times.

San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich has been named NBA coach of the year, making him just the third coach in league history to win the award three times in his career.
The NBA announced the honor Tuesday. He has won it twice in the past three seasons and joins Don Nelson and Pat Riley as the only coaches to win the award three times.
Popovich led the Spurs to a league-best 62-20 record, which gives them home-court advantage throughout the playoffs. Popovich has led the Spurs to 15 straight 50-win seasons and has won 60 games four times in that span.
Popovich garnered 59 first-place votes. Phoenix’s Jeff Hornacek finished second and Chicago’s Tom Thibodeau finished third in the voting.
