Doncic Mavs manager Rick Carlisle says goodbye after 13 seasons

American Rick Carlisle, coach of Luka Doncic’s Dallas Mavericks, resigned from the position he had held since 2008, the NBA franchise reported on Thursday.

The 61-year-old coach was an NBA champion with the Mavericks in 2011 and is the third-winningest active coach.

After falling for the second year in a row in the first round of the playoffs, Carlisle resigned from the two seasons he had under contract with Dallas in which he had to continue building a future project around the figure of Luka Doncic.

“Rick informed me today of his decision to resign as head coach,” Mavericks owner Mark Cuban said in a statement.

Carlisle’s resignation comes amid a deep sports restructuring process at the Mavericks, who finished the season in fifth place in the Western Conference and lost in the first round of the playoffs to the Los Angeles Clippers (4-3), in a tie that they went on to win 2-0. (AFP)
