PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

The Portland Timbers have signed head coach Caleb Porter to a long-term contract extension, the club announced Wednesday.

Porter has compiled a 41-25-36 record since joining the Timbers in 2013. He led the team to the MLS Cup title in 2015 and achieved double-digit wins in each of his first three seasons.

"It's hard to imagine a better cultural, tactical and philosophical fit to lead the Portland Timbers on the pitch than Caleb Porter," said Merritt Paulson, owner of the Timbers. "I am delighted to announce his long-term contract extension."

Terms of the extension were not released.

"I would like to thank Merritt and Gavin for the faith they have shown in me with this long-term commitment to continue leading this incredible organization - the Portland Timbers," said Porter. "My family and I feel privileged to live in this wonderful community and personally I'm humbled every day to coach for a club with the best supporters in MLS. I'm extremely proud of what our staff has built and accomplished over three years, but we are very hungry to sustain this success and achieve more in the future."

The Timbers have the second-fewest home losses in MLS over the last three seasons with a 24-7-20 regular-season mark at Providence Park since 2013.
