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.

The NBA announced the honor on Tuesday. He has won it twice in the last 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.

Phoenix's Jeff Hornacek finished second in voting and Chicago's Tom Thibodeau third.
