Wahoo Carlisle returning to NBA sidelines?

The Associated Press reports that UVA alum Rick Carlisle is the frontrunner to be the new head coach for the NBA's Dallas Mavericks. This would be the third NBA team Carlisle has helmed in his coaching career, after four years building a Detroit Pistons team that would win a championship the year after the Pistons fired him, and three years with the Indiana Pacers. Carlisle was the co-captain of the 1984 Cavaliers team that went to the Final Four.
