SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Sioux Falls Storm has given head coach Kurtiss Riggs a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the helm of the Indoor Football League team through 2016.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Team owner Todd Tryon said he wanted to retain Riggs as the team moves into the newly opened Denny Sanford Premier Center for the 2015 season.

“I’ve always said, as long as I’m in control of this franchise, coach Riggs will be our coach,” Tryon said. “What he has done throughout his coaching career is unmatched at any level, and we are very fortunate to have him guide us into a new era.”

Riggs has led the Storm for 13 seasons. The team has won eight league titles during his tenure - including the last four - and has had three undefeated seasons. Riggs’ overall record is 168-33.

Riggs is a former head coach of the University of Sioux Falls, where he led the Cougars to the 1996 NAIA championship. He’s a member of the university and NAIA halls of fame. Off the field, he teaches high school and owns a football training academy.
