    Default How many players have publicly supported Frank coming back so far?

    I saw Paul George retweet a message calling for his return. In another thread I saw quotes from Dahntay Jones saying he did a great job and essentially that he wants him back.

    Has anyone else said or done anything publicly yet to support his return? Did I miss anyone?

    I think Tyler's statement in the press conference after the Game 5 basically says he wants Vogel back.
    "Nobody wants to play against Tyler Hansbrough NO BODY!" ~ Frank Vogel

    "And David put his hand in the bag and took out a stone and slung it. And it struck the Philistine on the head and he fell to the ground. Amen. "

    Tyler did it in the press conference after the game, he said that they didn't have a team before Vogel and that now they play as a team.

    I wonder with such a turnaround if the players assume it has to be Vogel's job?

    Kind of the opposite situation with the Indiana class basketball experiment that most people were so sure was going to revert back to the old system at the end of the 2 year or whatever it was timeframe for the experiment that they were blindsided when they found out the IHSAA had different plans.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Basically what vnzla81 said.

    Also listen to the JMV podcast with Adrian Wojnarowski. He said Tyler was ready to run through a wall for him.

    Tyler's post game comments: http://www.nba.com/video/channels/pl...postgame5.nba/

    Question: "Tyler, what can you say about your coach...would you want him to come back for next year?"

    Tyler: "Yeah, I definitely like playing for him...he gave me a shot, let me play basketball...one thing I think he did well was we became a team under him and we all kind of gained an identity as being a tough and physical and scrappy team. That's something we hadn't developed in the past, we didn't really have an identity, we weren't necessarily a team."

    Here's the text/link to Roy's tweet:

    Coach Frank for coach of the year.
    http://twitter.com/#!/Hoya2aPacer/status/58209650616696832


    Just pulled this up! Add Mr. Granger to the list!:

    “We want that ‘interim’ taken off his title...Management usually asks for the players’ input on important decisions like this,” Granger said. “I expect [team president Larry Bird] to do so again. If he gives us who we want, he’ll make Vogel the full-time head coach — not interim. Vogel really improved our play overall. Of course, that’s a decision that management makes. And they don’t always make it the way the players want.”

    http://www.suntimes.com/sports/baske...th-pacers.html

    The same article contains an even more direct statement from Hans:

    "I want to see him back as head coach,” said starting forward *Tyler Hansbrough,"

    P.S. I love that the article is in the Chicago press and the reporter sounds worried about Frank leading this team against them next season!

    What that leaves AJ, Lance, Rush, Posey, and Collison? Everyone else had no garunteed contract right?

    I don't see a name on the remaining list that even gets a significant opinion. Maybe Collison, maybe.

    Collison I would say is really the only other opinion that matters. Everyone else is a "Meh" with me.

    Foster's opinion matters to me, even if he is not coming back - just because I know he cares about the future of the Pacers and has been around the block more than a few times.

    His name wasn't on the list I was referring to. And just for the record, Foster goes as the Pacers go lol. He's like me at B-Dubs, he's down for whatever.

    I think Foster mentioned in his interview with Mark Montieth on 1070 that he liked Frank and hoped he'd be made the coach.


    Could be wrong.

    I would hope that the players' opinion on Vogel's prospective return
    as HC would be a 'very small part' of the criteria that Bird's uses to
    make his decision.

    I don't. I would consider the players opinion of their coach a very valuable part of the decision making process. Who would you work harder for: a guy who gets you believe your best interests are the team's best interests, or a guy who plays favorites and is in it for him self?

    I've seen many a business run into the ground by management that ignored their most valuable employees opinions.

    I'm fine for bringing Vogel back, but just like a 1 or 2 year deal to see how he handles a full season.

    If you aren't prepared to give him a 3 year deal, then he obviously is not the correct choice. If Bird thinks like you do, then he needs to pick someone else.

    If I were in charge, I would care what the players publically say about Vogel, but I would put a ton of weight in what they say to me in private. So as a fan I don't put too much weight into that the players say in the media, the players generally have to support him in the media.

    Just a thought - don't feel strongly about this, just throwing it out there - So I think the more perhaps meaningful thing from Kravitz column yesterday was that no one has voiced their support off the record for Frank.

    In general, Bird knows a lot more of what has gone on since Vogel took over, so I have no choice but to trust his judgment on whether Frank is the best choice for our team.
