Gregg Popovich is negotiating a contract extension to remain with the San Antonio Spurs.

Popovich's future with the Spurs was in doubt following their first round exit, but he confirmed on Monday he'll return next season.

Popovich expressed optimism about next season.

"It's just the beginning of a new culture for a new group," he said. "So we will have a little bit of corporate knowledge going into next season, and they'll show that, I think."
