Carlisle was raised in
Lisbon, New York. He graduated from Worcester Academyand played two years of college basketballat the University of Mainebefore transferring to the University of Virginia, where he co-captained the Cavaliers to the Final Fourin 1984. After graduating that same year, he was drafted by the Boston Celtics(23rd pick in the third round), where he played alongside Larry Birdon the Celtics' 1986 NBA Championshipteam. With the Celtics, he averaged 2.2 points, 1.0 assists and 0.8 rebounds per game in a limited reserve role.
In 1987, Carlisle was sent to the
New York Knicks. In 1989, Carlisle played in 5 games with the New Jersey Nets.
Later that year, he accepted an assistant coach position with the Nets, where he spent five seasons under
Bill Fitchand Chuck Daly. In 1994, Carlisle joined the assistant coaching staff with the Portland Trail Blazersunder coach P.J. Carlesimo, where he spent three seasons.
In 1997, Rick Carlisle joined the
Indiana Pacersorganization as an assistant coach under his former teammate, Larry Bird. During his time as Pacers assistant coach, he helped the Pacers to two of their best seasons ever. First, in 1997-98, the Pacers stretched the Chicago Bullsto the limit, narrowly losing the deciding seventh game of the Eastern Conference finals to the eventual NBA champion. Then, in 1999-2000, the Pacers made the NBA Finals for the first time, ultimately losing to the Los Angeles Lakers. Bird stepped down as coach, and pushed for Carlisle to be selected as his replacement, but Pacers team president Donnie Walsh gave the job to Isiah Thomas.
For the 2001 season, Carlisle was recruited by the
Detroit Pistonsto be their new head coach. In two seasons as Pistons' head coach, Carlisle led them to consecutive 50-32 records (.610) and playoff appearances, and was named Coach of the Year in 2002. However, the Pistons fired Carlisle after the 2002-03 season with a year remaining on his contract and hired Larry Brown. Friction between Carlisle and team ownership was cited as one of the primary reasons for the firing.
Ironically, Carlisle's Pistons had just dispatched Brown's 76ers in the conference semifinals.
For the 2003-04 season, Carlisle was re-hired by the Indiana Pacers -- but this time, as its head coach (
Isiah Thomashad been fired, almost immediately after Larry Birdwas brought back as the new President of Basketball Operations). In his first season, Carlisle led the Pacers to the NBA's best regular-season record (61-21; 74.4%). In the playoffs, the team eliminated both the Boston Celticsand Miami Heat, before losing to the Detroit Pistonsin the Eastern Conference Finals. In 2005, the Pacers roster was decimated by injuries ( most notably, those of Jermaine O'Nealand Jamaal Tinsley), and suspensions (due to the November 19 brawl attributed to Ron Artestat the Palace of Auburn Hills). Carlisle was still able to rally the Pacers to the NBA Playoffs that season, though. As the sixth seed, they again defeated the Boston Celtics in the first round, before being defeated once again by the eventual Eastern Conference Champion, the Pistons.
After the Pacers finished the 2006-07 season with a 35-47 record (missing the playoffs for the first time since 1997), Carlisle's tenure as head coach ended; it is unclear whether he voluntarily resigned, was fired, or was pushed to resign. In four seasons with the Indiana Pacers, Carlisle compiled a 181-147 record. [ [http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/news/story?id=2848972 Carlisle won't return as Pacers head coach] , published April 25, 2007] On
June 12, 2007, Carlisle announced that he would also resign from his position as Executive Vice-president of the Pacers.
After leaving Indiana, Carlisle worked as a studio analyst for
ESPNbefore signing with the Dallas Mavericksas its new head coach.
