You must enclose the compound result within parentheses, i.e. you are
returning a _list_ of values. Note that you can safely discard *Return*
since Mathematica returns the value of the last statement evaluated.

In[1]:= f[data_] :=
Module[{a, b}, a = Mean[data]; b = Total[data]; {a, b}]

{x, y} = f[{{1, 2, 3}, {4, 5, 6}, {7, 8, 9}}]

Out[2]= {{4, 5, 6}, {12, 15, 18}}

In[3]:= x

Out[3]= {4, 5, 6}

In[4]:= y

Out[4]= {12, 15, 18}
