Rick Carlisle has agreed to a four-year contract to remain head coach of the Mavericks.

Carlisle led Dallas to the 2011 NBA Championship, but followed that up with a four-game exit in the first round of the 2012 Playoffs.

"We are excited that Rick will be back with the Mavericks for at least the next four years," owner Mark Cuban said in a statement. "He is a proven winner, a great teacher and a coach that will help the Mavericks improve as a team and as an organization."

Carlisle has a .635 winning percentage with the Mavericks.
