The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have named Rick
Carlisle head coach. Carlisle becomes the ninth coach in Mavericks history.
Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Carlisle arrives in Dallas with six years of head coaching experience with
Detroit and Indiana and holds a career record of 281-211 (.571). Carlisle's
teams have made five postseason appearances, including two trips to the
Eastern Conference Finals. In his two seasons with Detroit and his first in
Indiana, Carlisle became the first coach since Pat Riley to win 50 games and
division championships in each of his first three seasons.
In two years with Detroit, Carlisle earned a .610 winning percentage
(100-61), claimed two Central Division championships and an appearance in
the Eastern Conference Finals. Following the 2001-02 season, Carlisle was
recognized as the NBA Coach of the Year.
Carlisle took over as head coach of the Indiana Pacers in September of 2003.
In his first season, he led Indiana to the NBA's best record (61-21), the
most victories in Pacers' history, a Central Division championship and a
berth in the Eastern Conference Finals. Carlisle earned a 181-147 (.552)
mark in four seasons with Indiana before stepping down as head coach
following the 2006-07 campaign.
Carlisle's coaching career began in 1989 as an assistant with the New Jersey
Nets. In five seasons with New Jersey, he worked under Hall of Fame coaches
Bill Fitch and Chuck Daly. Carlisle also spent three seasons in Portland
under P.J. Carlesimo before joining teammate Larry Bird's staff in Indiana
for the 1997-98 season.
As a player, Carlisle won a World Championship in 1986 as a member of the
Boston Celtics. During his five-year career, he spent time with the Celtics,
Knicks and Nets.
In 1984, Carlisle graduated with a degree in psychology from the University
of Virginia. He was co-captain of the Cavaliers 1984 Final Four squad after
transferring from the University of Maine.
"We are happy and proud to welcome Rick Carlisle into the Maverick family,"
President of Basketball Operations Donnie Nelson said. "He was our top
choice from the onset. His integrity, exceptional basketball IQ and balanced
approach are exactly what we were looking for. Rick's playoff experience and
success make him a great fit for our team and its future."
