Report: Pacers name Frank Vogel head coach

The Indiana Pacers have scheduled a press conference for Wednesday that will officially seal Frank Vogel’s promotion to full-time coach according to NBA coaching sources.


HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: He’s no longer ‘The Temp’.

Today, the Indiana Pacers promoted former assistant and interim coach Frank Vogel to the full time position of head coach.

This is smart. The Pacers were 20-18 under Vogel after he replaced Jim O’Brien. They also squeaked into the playoffs as an eight-seed, but lost to the Chicago Bulls in five games.

So the Pacers have their coach. They have a nice, young core. They also have considerable cap space.

Things are looking up in the Hoosier state. Like the rest of us, they`re just waiting on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
