WASHINGTON (AP) - Coach Randy Wittman has received a contract extension from the Washington Wizards.

The Wizards announced Tuesday that Wittman had been rewarded after leading the Wizards to their first playoff berth since 2008.

Washington beat the Chicago Bulls in the first round before losing to the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

Wittman was promoted to head coach when Flip Saunders was fired in January 2012, the third rebuilding project Wittman has undertaken. He has the worst win-loss record in NBA regular-season history of anyone who has coached at least 400 games - 191-329 - since the league started in 1946.
