Indiana Pacers coach Rick Carlisle has agreed on a multiyear contract extension, sources told ESPN on Thursday.

Carlisle, who recorded his 897th career win Wednesday in Indiana’s victory against the Washington Wizards, returned to the Pacers in 2021 as coach and now solidifies himself as the franchise leader of the organization’s rebuild around All-Star guard Tyrese Haliburton.

In his second run with the Pacers, Carlisle has taken on a significant organizational leadership role with president of basketball operations Kevin Pritchard and general manager Chad Buchanan.

Carlisle, 63, rejoined the Pacers — where he coached from 2003 to 2007 — after 13 seasons with the Dallas Mavericks. He won an NBA championship in 2011 with Dallas and also is the longtime president of the National Basketball Coaches Association.
