Basketball Coach
    (October 27, 1959- )
    Coaches Indiana Pacers (2003-)
    Coached Detroit Pistons (2001-03)
    Assistant coach for Indiana Pacers (1997-2000)
    Played for University of Virginia, Boston Celtics, and New York Knicks
    NBA Coach of the Year (2002)
    He is the NBA's version of Rodney Dangerfield.
    After being the top assistant coach of the Pacers team that made the 2000 NBA Finals, he was passed over for the Pacers head coach job in favor of Isiah Thomas.
    After leading the Pistons to two straight division titles and 50-win seasons, he was fired and replaced by Larry Brown.
    He relentlessly tries to convince media people to consider his players for awards.
    He has a stubborn personality.
    He looks like a frowning Jim Carrey.
    He rarely, if ever, smiles.
    He only played a few seasons in the NBA, and the most he averaged was 2.6 points per game.
    He was co-captain of the Virginia Cavaliers' 1984 Final Four team.
    He was the second NBA coach to win division titles in each of his first three coaching seasons (Pat Riley was the other).
    He coached the Pacers to 61 wins in the 2003-04 season, a franchise record.
    He played alongside Larry Bird during the Boston Celtics' 1986 championship run.
    He is still good friends with Bird, and Bird gave Carlisle the Pacers' assistant and head coaching positions.
    He thinks coaching his players to a championship trophy is more important than any other coaching honors.
