Sporting Kansas City coach Peter Vermes had his contract with the team extended Tuesday. Vermes is now under contract through the 2017 season

He says he really wasn't thinking about going anywhere else.

"When you're around this every day and you're around the leaders of this club, and you hear and understand what their vision is, it's an easy choice," said Vermes. "You'd be an idiot to not want to be a part of it."

Sporting Kansas City is currently in first place in the East Division of Major League Soccer.
