Rick Carlisle has stepped down as coach of the Dallas Mavericks, the second significant departure for that franchise in as many days. Carlisle spent 13 seasons in Dallas, leading the Mavericks to the 2011 NBA title. He announced his decision Thursday, one day after general manager Donnie Nelson and the team agreed to part ways, ending a 24-year run for Nelson as part of the organization. As a result, Dallas becomes the seventh team with a coaching vacancy, joining New Orleans, Washington, Orlando, Indiana, Portland, and Boston, where Carlisle played for the team that won the 1986 NBA title.
