Rick Carlisle is the current coach for the Dallas Mavericks.

The Dallas Mavericks are an American professional basketball team based in Dallas, Texas. They play in the Southwest Division of the Western Conference in the National Basketball Association (NBA).[1] The team joined the NBA in 1980 as an expansion team,[2] and won their first Western Conference championship in 2006.[3] The Mavericks have played their home games at the American Airlines Center since 2001.[4] The Mavericks are owned by Mark Cuban, and Donnie Nelson is their general manager.[5]

There have been nine head coaches for the Mavericks franchise. The franchise's first head coach was Dick Motta, who served for two non-consecutive stints, and coached for nine seasons with the Mavericks. Motta is the franchise's all-time leader for the most regular-season games coached (738); Don Nelson, Donnie Nelson's father, is the franchise's all-time leader for the most regular-season game wins (339); Avery Johnson is the franchise's all-time leader for the most playoff games coached (47), the most playoff-game wins (23), and the highest winning percentage in the regular season (.735). Nelson is also named one of the top 10 coaches in NBA history.[6] Johnson is the only coach to have ever won the Western Conference championship, but lost the 2006 NBA Finals to the Miami Heat.[3] Johnson is also the only Mavericks coach to have won the NBA Coach of the Year Award, having won it in the 2005–06 season.[7] Quinn Buckner, Jim Cleamons, and Johnson have spent their entire NBA coaching careers with the Mavericks. None of the Mavericks coaches have been elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame as a coach.[8] Rick Carlisle has been the head coach of the Mavericks since 2008.[9]
