Rick Carlisle Tours Cowboys Camp

Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle continued his Richard Gere-tribute "I Got Nowhere Else To Go'' Tour with a visit to Dallas Cowboys camp earlier this week, just one day after throwing out the first pitch at a Rangers game. Did the world champion coach -- representing a team and a league in lockout -- see any prospects out there on the football field?

“There’d be some guys that could set some good screens and go up and get the ball out of the air,” Carlisle joked, adding that he's aware that Tony Romo and Jason Witten can ball ... and that tight end Martellus Bennett, who actually played college basketball at A&M, promised him "he could give us 15 and 16.''

"We might have to take him up on that someday,'' Rick said.

What's next for the coach, who cannot actually coach his players right now? Play goalie for the Stars? Dribble over to FC Dallas? An online bingo game, maybe? We know that Carlisle is a gifted pianist and a fine ping-pong player. Hope that fills up the rest of the summer, coach.
