    Thumbs down Pacers announce Carlisle will not return as coach

    E-mail I just recieved...


    "
    The Indiana Pacers announced Friday that Rick Carlisle will not return as head coach, but will have the option to return to the team in another capacity.
    In four seasons as Pacers coach, Carlisle compiled a 181-147 record (.552 winning percentage). The Pacers made the NBA playoffs in three of the four seasons and reached the Eastern Conference Finals in Carlisle's first year, 2003-04. That same season, the Pacers posted a 61-21 record, the best in franchise history.
    “Rick's contributions to this franchise, first as an assistant coach, then as a head coach, have been tremendous,” said President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird. “This is a mutual decision and we're happy that Rick will consider remaining with the franchise.”
    “My wife, Donna, and I are very grateful to have had the opportunity to be part of a great organization like the Indiana Pacers for seven of the last 10 years,” said Carlisle. “We wish to thank Mel and Herb Simon, Larry Bird, Donnie Walsh and our players for a great experience. This is a class organization with great leadership and a loyal fan base that's second to none.”
    The Pacers' search for a new coach will begin immediately."

    You know, I was watching the Golden State, Dallas game the other night

    and I was shocked to see that Big AL and S. Jackson are ACTUALLY ATHLETIC.

    And here I thought they were a couple of plodders that couldn't move, like the rest of the PACERS.

    (The guys we got back are the antithesis, but that's a PTB problem.)

    Needless to say, see YAHHHHHHHHHHH, Rick

    your game is about as entertaining (to watch and to play) as a root canal.

    I expected Carlisle will not get fired. He step down.

    He wont get fired because of the brawl, problem players.

    You mean after Bird is fired, the team gets good players and Rick is rehired as HC (assuming he'd take the job).

    Everyone should have seen this coming.

    Carlisle was a class act. Hope he rejoins the organization in a different spot, but I see him coaching another team. I wish it had worked out because he's a great coach.
