Cleveland (WOIO) - David Blatt is the new head coach of the Cavaliers, confirming the deal himself on Friday afternoon.

The 55-year old Boston native, who hasn't played or coached in the United States in 33 years, but who's had great success overseas, agreed to a three-year deal, with a team option for a fourth year, that could be worth up to $20 million.

Blatt led Maccabi Tel-Aviv to the Euroleague title last month, pulling off an upset over Real Madrid in the championship game. He's also led Benetton Treviso to the Italian League title, and guided the Russian national team to a bronze medal in the 2012 London Olympics.

He's the first coach to make the leap from European basketball to the NBA as a head coach.
