Rick Carlisle Career

Rick Carsie is an American basketball coach and former player who is the head coach for the Indiana Pacers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He has previously served as head coach of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the Detroit Pistons and Dallas Mavericks.

After graduating in 1984 Rick was selected 70th overall in the 1984 NBA draft by the Boston Celtics, where he played alongside Larry Bird. Under Celtics’ coach K. C. Jones, Rick lost in the finals in 1985 and 1987 and won the NBA championship in 1986. In the 1986 NBA finals series, in limited playing time, He made every shot he took (3 for 3).

In a limited reserve role from 1984 to 1987, He averaged 1.0 assists, 2.2 points, and 0.8 rebounds per game. Rick under Bill Musselman then played for the Albany Patroons of the Continental Basketball Association (CBA). Carlisle then with the New York Knicks signed as a free agent, where he played alongside emerging star Patrick Ewing under coach Rick Pitino. In 1989, He played in five games with the New Jersey Nets under Bill Fitch.

Later in 1989, Rick accepted an assistant coaching position with the Nets, where Carlise spent five seasons under Chuck Daly and Bill Fitch. In 1994, He joined the assistant coaching staff under coach P. J. Carlesimo with the Portland Trail Blazers, where he spent three seasons.

In 1997, Rick joined the Indiana Pacers organization under former teammate, Larry Bird as an assistant coach. During his time as Pacers assistant coach, Carlisle helped the Pacers to two of their best seasons ever. First, in 1997–98, the Pacers stretched the Chicago Bulls to the limit to the eventual NBA champion, narrowly losing the deciding seventh game of the Eastern Conference Finals.

Then, in the 1999–2000 season, the Pacers for the first time made the NBA Finals, ultimately losing to the Los Angeles Lakers. Bird stepped down as coach, and pushed as his replacement for Carlisle to be selected, but Pacers team president Donnie Walsh gave the job to Isiah Thomas.

For the 2001–02 season, He was hired by the Detroit Pistons to be their new head coach. In two seasons as Pistons’ head coach, Rick led the team to consecutive 50–32 records (.610) with playoff appearances and Central Division titles. Carlisle was named Coach of the Year in 2002. However, the Pistons fired him after the 2002–03 season with a year remaining on his contract and hired Larry Brown.

For the 2003–04 season, He returned to the Pacers as head coach (Isiah Thomas had been fired, almost immediately after Larry Bird was brought back as the new President of Basketball Operations). In his first season, Rick led NBA’s best regular-season record at 61–21 (74.4%) and the Pacers to the Central Division title, setting a franchise record for wins (both in the NBA and ABA).

The Pacers in 2005–06 slipped to a .500 record and barely made the playoffs, losing in the first round. Despite this, Pacers CEO Donnie Walsh and Bird for the Pacers’ lackluster performances did not hold Carlisle responsible in the past two seasons and showed it when they signed Carlisle to a multiyear contract extension in October 2006. The Pacers also gave Rick the additional title of executive vice president of basketball operations.

After the Pacers finished the 2006–07 season with a 35–47 record (missing the playoffs for the first time since 1997), Bird fired Him as head coach. Rick understood the decision, saying that the Pacers needed “a new voice.”

In four seasons with the Pacers, He compiled an 181–147 record. The Pacers offered to let Carlisle stay on in the front office, but Rick also resigned on June 12, 2007, from that post.

After leaving Indiana, Carlisle served for ESPN as a studio analyst before signing with the Dallas Mavericks as the team’s new head coach.

On May 9, 2008, Rick signed a four-year deal with Mark Cuban’s Dallas Mavericks, replacing Avery Johnson. Carlisle led them to a 50–32 record including a first-round win against the San Antonio Spurs. They would lose in the Western Conference Semifinals to the Denver Nuggets 1–4. The next year, Rick coached the Mavs to a 55–27 record, first in the Southwest Division and second in the West, but lost to the Spurs in the first round. In 2010, Dallas in a competitive Western Conference won sixteen of its first twenty games.

The 2010–11 season was his most successful as a head coach. The Mavericks finished the regular season with a 57–25 win-loss record. On May 8, 2011, they swept the two-time in the Western Conference semifinals defending champion Los Angeles Lakers.

On May 25, 2011, the Mavericks over the Oklahoma City Thunder in the Western Conference Finals enjoyed a 4–1 series win, the first Conference Finals victory of his coaching career. In the 2011 NBA Finals, Rick coached the Mavericks over the Miami Heat for the franchise’s first championship to a 4–2 series victory.

In the 2012 playoffs, the Mavericks in the first round lost 0–4 to the Thunder. On May 15, 2012, He agreed to a new four-year deal with the Mavericks. In 2013, the Mavericks missed the playoffs for the first time since 2000.

In 2014, Rick led the Mavericks as the eighth seed with a 49–33 record back to the playoffs where they would meet their in-state rivals San Antonio Spurs in the first round. The Mavericks lost the series to win the 2014 NBA Finals in seven games as the Spurs.

On January 30, 2015, Rick recorded his 600th win in a game against the Heat. Carlisle on November 5, 2015, signed a new five-year deal. Four days earlier, as the winningest coach in franchise history, He recorded his 340th win as Mavericks coach, passing Don Nelson.

On December 2, 2017, Rick in a game against the Los Angeles Clippers recorded his 700th win. On January 13, 2021, He recorded his 800th win in a game against the Charlotte Hornets. On June 17, 2021, Rick stepped down with two years remaining on his contract as the Maverick’s head coach. On June 24, 2021, He was hired as the head coach of the Indiana Pacers.
