Thread: Vogel to be announced coach once assistants are named!

  1. #1

    Default Vogel to be announced coach once assistants are named!

    UPDATE No. 2: According to Mike Wells of The Indianapolis Star, Bird will officially make Vogel the head coach once he has named his assistants.

    Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated also added this via Twitter on Friday: "Pacers likely to remove interim tag from Frank Vogel next week, sources say. Staff, salary only real hurdles left in the process."

    I was worried I wouldn't be able to do a Frank the Tank chant

    But seriously I feel good about this. I know a lot of fans including myself had questions about his ability to police the locker room, but with the right assistants this should be great.

    Thanks for the update!

    He and the Pacers will grow together. I think he has tons of potential, glad Bird and staff are giving him his shot he deserves.

    This is kind of weird... How do you go about hiring assistants by saying... I have the job I just have to wait til I get all of my assistants including you... Seems like it would make a assistant think twice about wanting to work with that organization, atleast good assistants that is.

    A co-sign from Larry Bird goes a long way, I'm guessing.

    Forget a co-sign... show me the contract...show me that you are committed to this coach, if you aren't committed to him than why would I believe that you are committed to me. Assistant coaches have to be looking for financial stability... who would you go work for, a guy like Mark Jackson who already has the job, or take the chance on Vogel an the Pacers who haven't even hired him yet... I bet the two head coaches are looking at a lot of the same candidates for their assistant jobs.

    I guess I am just not to hopeful with this style of front office moves.

    I hope he gets more than the 1 year deal that was talked about.

    Awesome news .. Let us hope it is true , and that Frank gets to officially be the next Indiana Pacer's HeadCoach...

    This upcoming year will probably be one of the most anticipated Pacer's seasons in awhile for me.

    To me, it is the season that we will start to see everything CLICK into place with our player's chemistry and development as a TEAM..

    Plumlee reminds me of a young Dale Davis. Good rebounding and he contests shots well on defense and his offensive game is very raw just like DD's was coming out of college.

    Seems to me that Vogel could have been birds 2 or 3 option and he couldnt get his first bigger name options.

    Forget about the spirit.. that is just hoping... but we all still do live in reality... and to add if they are just offering a 1 yr contract how does that look to assistant coaches... I believe that it just gives a less desirable situation for a assistant coach to go to...

    I am always a pacers fan but I still have to think logically...

    Maybe this doesn't mean Vogel to be named HC contingent on his assistant hires but instead means Vogel IS the head coach and as soon as he picks his staff the team will do final negotiations on salary (knowing the full staff at that time and what it will cost) and then announce Vogel an the staff all at once....

    As long as they have a ballpark on the salary and budget for the coaching staff to where they know they are close and somewhat flexible then that approach would be workable.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Where's that happy dance smiley...

    Seriously..great decision Larry.

    It's not only a good decision for the team, but IMO, Vogel earned a chance, and it's the right thing to do too.

    See, if you take time to think about a decision and then make a decision that everyone wanted you to make, you are clearly stupid for considering your options. It's only if you make an immediate decision that people DON'T like that a quick decision is bad, so you should take the time to not take the time to poll the people who make snap decisions based on things you don't want to make decisions on.

    Is that clearer?
