Hoos on the Move

Former @UVAMensHoops standout Rick Carlisle was announced as the head coach of the Indiana Pacers yesterday. Carlisle will begin his second head coaching stint with Indiana after he guided the Pacers to a 181-147 (.552) record during four seasons from 2003-07. He has completed 19 NBA seasons as head coach of the Detroit Pistons (2001-03), Pacers and Dallas Mavericks (2008-21). He has compiled an 836-689 (.548) record and will enter the 2021-22 season ranked 15th in NBA history in coaching victories. Carlisle was named NBA Coach of the Year after his first season in Detroit in 2001-02 and led the Mavericks to their first NBA championship in 2010-11. Read more here.

And, as UVA fans were quick to point out when the deal was first rumored, former Cavalier great Malcolm Brogdon plays for the Pacers.
