Nick Nurse to Coach Canadian Nationwide Workforce By 2024

Toronto Raptors head coach Nick Nurse signed a contract extension on Tuesday, but not in the NBA.

On Tuesday, the Canadian national basketball team announced that their head coach, Nurse, had signed a contract extension to stay with the team until 2024.

The new expansion means Nurse will become the head coach of the Canadian national team for the 2024 Olympics in Paris, France.

Nurse joined Canada in 2019 and served as the head coach during Canada’s Olympic qualifying campaign after the NBA season. Canada failed to qualify for the 2020 Olympics, which will take place in 2021, after suffering an overtime loss to the Czech Republic during qualifying.

Nurse has only been head coach in the NBA for three seasons and is already very successful. In three seasons, Nurse has set a record of 138-88, three Coach of the Month awards, 2019-20 NBA Coach of the Year, and 2019 NBA Championship.

Prior to becoming the Raptors’ head coach, Nurse served as an assistant from 2013-18 and spent 11 seasons coaching the British Basketball League.
