Mavericks Chaos Continues as Rick Carlisle is OUT as Head Coach!


Just one day after GM Donnie Nelson was let go, Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle has now left the organization after 13 years at the helm.

Carlisle had two years left on his contract, but informed owner Mark Cuban today that he won't be returning next season. This all comes after revelations earlier this week about an explosive rift between franchise player Luka Doncic and Cuban's righthand-man Bob Voulgaris.

Doncic was also reportedly upset at the firing of GM Nelson. This, then, could be a move that helps to smooth things over with Luka, as sources say that his relationship with Carlisle was strained. 

In fact, Tim MacMahon of ESPN reports that Doncic is a big fan of Mavs' assistant coach Jamahl Mosely. 

Big changes in the Big D. Next up for Cuban and the Mavs: Get Doncic's name on that super max extension this summer.
