NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - The Portland Trail Blazers announced the hiring of Dallas Mavericks assistant Terry Stotts as their next coach in a statement on Tuesday afternoon. “Terry is one of the elite offensive minds in the NBA, has extensive experience with multiple organizations and was instrumental in the Dallas Mavericks winning the 2011 NBA Championship,” Blazers GM Neil Olshey said in a statement. “He understands the vision for the future of the franchise, appreciates the process involved and will create an environment on the court that will produce championship habits.”

Stotts previously served as the head man on two occasions: from 2002-2004 with the Atlanta Hawks and 2005-07 with the Milwaukee Bucks. He holds a career coaching record of 115-168 and boasts one playoff appearance and zero .500+ seasons to his name.

Despite his lack of success as a head coach, Stotts arrives in Portland with strong backing from Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle, who gave him a full endorsement to The Oregonian.
