What led Rick to return to Pacers stepping down as the Dallas Mavericks head coach

Rick returned to Pacers for the second time as a head coach. He previously coached Pacers from 2003 to 2007

He took the head coach job at Dallas Mavericks in 2008, where he spent thirteen seasons leading the team to win their first and only NBA championship in 2011. He had two years left on the contract before he stepped down from his head coach position. 

His decision to leave the team came just after the day the team fired the general manager Donnie Nelson, his close friend.

As parents, both of them wished to have a girl, and their prayers were heard. They gave birth to their daughter Abby on the 7th of May, 2004
