Aug. 8 (Bloomberg) -- Terry Stotts was chosen as the 14th head coach of the National Basketball Association’s Portland Trail Blazers.

Stotts, 54, heads to Oregon after four seasons as an assistant with the Dallas Mavericks. He succeeds Nate McMillan, who was fired a day after Portland lost by 42 points to the New York Knicks in March.

“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,” Trail Blazers General Manager Neil Olshey said yesterday on the team’s website.

Stotts has a 115-168 record as a head coach following stints with the Atlanta Hawks from 2002-04 and the Milwaukee Bucks from 2005-07.

Portland assistant Kaleb Canales took over the team after McMillan, 47, was fired.

The Trail Blazers ended the 2011-12 season in fourth place in the Western Conference’s five-team Northwest Division with a 28-38 record, 19 games behind the Oklahoma City Thunder.
