Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle is expected to sign a long-term contract extension with the team, according to a report.

Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle is expected to sign a long-term contract extension that will keep him as the team's coach for the foreseeable future, according to Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning-News. It remains unclear how long Carlisle will stay with the team, but his contract was set to expire on July 1.

Carlisle has been with the Mavericks since the 2008-09 season. He's compiled a 198-114 record in four seasons with the team and led the squad to the 2011 NBA championship. He has an overall record of 479-325 in 10 years as a head coach with three different teams.

The Mavericks are expected to make an official announcement about Carlisle's new contract shortly, according to the Dallas Morning-News report. The Mavericks' roster is expected to look very different next season, with several key players being free agents.
