Frank Vogel

  1. David Stern talks flopping, doesn’t really say much

    May 14, 2012, 4:34 PM EDT

    David Stern

    David Stern has the politician’s gift of being able to talk about something without really saying anything. So it was when he got asked about the flopping by ABC’s Lisa Salters during Game 1 between the Heat and Pacers Sunday. Flopping was an issue in this series because Pacers coach Frank Vogel started working the…

  2. Pacers coach Frank Vogel fined for planting seed in refs’ heads

    May 12, 2012, 7:57 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers head coach Frank Vogel complains to an official during the second quarter of Game 1 of their first round NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoffs against the Orlando Magic in Indianapolis

    There will be no working the referees through the media before the series starts. That is what the NBA essentially said when it came down Saturday with a $15,000 fine for Pacers coach Frank Vogel less than a day before his team opens the second round against the Heat. Vogel started trying to plant a…

  3. Quote of the day: Frank Vogel hopes the Heat don’t get too many whistles

    May 10, 2012, 7:30 PM EDT

    Vogel

    From our own Ira Winderman, here are some fighting words from Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel, whose team will meet the reigning Eastern Conference Champion Miami Heat in Round 2 of the NBA Playoffs on Sunday: “It’ll be very interesting to see how the referees officiate the series and how much flopping they reward. .…

  4. Gregg Popovich named NBA Coach of the Year

    May 1, 2012, 2:35 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, DeJuan Blair, Gregg Popovich

    The announcement came Tuesday afternoon with a press conference to follow where Gregg Popovich will be uncomfortable answering media questions. Spurs headman Gregg Popovich has been named NBA Coach of the Year. Mike Monroe of the Express-News was first with the report but the league has now confirmed it. And it’s a good call. When…

  5. Frank Vogel, the Indiana Pacers, and the “next step”

    Dec 5, 2011, 3:11 PM EDT

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    The Indiana Pacers snuck into the NBA Playoffs last season thanks to weak competition among the middling teams of the Eastern Conference, but the playoff appearance itself — and the dogfight Indiana was able to give the Chicago Bulls in the first round — still meant plenty to the Pacers’ young, developing core. Then-interim head…

  6. The enduring value of the Pacers’ undeserved playoff berth

    As third parties have banded about all kinds of system-related ideas in light of the lockout, I’ve seen the 2010-2011 Indiana Pacers, who finished the regular season with a 37-45 record, categorically used as evidence in support of an altered playoff system. As much as I understand the sentiment that teams so far under .500…

  8. George Hill is going to miss watching Ginobili play nightly

    Jul 19, 2011, 7:39 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v San Antonio Spurs, Game 6

    Here’s what we learned about George Hill today — not a fan of Whataburger. Big fan of Gregg Popovich’s jokes (if you like dry humor you’d like his jokes, too.) But what did Hill tell butthegameison.com he would miss most after the trade? When asked to rate how much he would miss seeing Manu Ginobili…

  9. It’s finally official, Frank Vogel is Pacers head coach

    Jul 6, 2011, 1:59 PM EDT

    Vogel

    Since the season ended — when Frank Vogel led the Indiana Pacers on a 20-18 turnaround that got them into the playoffs then put up a good fight against the Bulls — everyone expected Vogel to move from interim coach to full time head coach. The Pacers went through the motions of a coaching search,…

  10. Brian Shaw to be Vogel’s head assistant in Indiana

    Jul 5, 2011, 6:28 PM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    It probably wasn’t the job he was hoping to get when the off-season began, but long-time Laker assistant coach Brian Shaw will be Frank Vogel’s head assistant in Indiana, according to multiple sources. When Phil Jackson retired after the Lakers were swept by the NBA champion Mavericks in the second round of the playoffs, some…

  11. Pacers will officially name Vogel head coach

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    According to multiple sources, the Indiana Pacers will officially remove the “interim” tag from Frank Vogel’s head coaching title and announce a three-year extension with him at a press conference on Wednesday morning. Vogel coached the Pacers to a 20-18 record after taking over for Jim O’Brien in the middle of last season, which allowed…

  12. Brian Shaw to interview to be Pacers assistant coach

    Jun 20, 2011, 10:07 AM EDT

    Brian Shaw

    Just a few years back, Brian Shaw got the chance to interview to be the head coach of the Indiana Pacers. Didn’t work out, they went with Jim O’Brien instead. Now, Shaw is back in Indiana interviewing, but this time to be the lead assistant for Frank Vogel. That’s what Mike Wells of the Indianapolis…

  13. Wojnarowski: Pacers leaning toward keeping Vogel

    Jun 9, 2011, 8:28 PM EDT

    Vogel

    Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has the report: The Indiana Pacers have made significant progress toward deciding to make interim Frank Vogel the permanent head coach while working to strengthen his grip on the locker room, league sources told Yahoo! Sports. No final decision has been reached, but sources said most of the hurdles have been cleared for…

  14. Mike Brown, Rick Adelman considered for Pacers vacancy

    May 17, 2011, 2:18 PM EDT

    rick adelman

    Apparently, despite getting the team into the playoffs and being able to spin a basketball on a toothbrush are not enough to impress Larry Bird. Frank Vogel, the interim coach who did a good job with the Indiana Pacers this season, will have competition from Mike Brown and Rick Adelman for the head-coaching job, according…

  15. Frank Vogel spun a basketball on a toothbrush on television 25 years ago

    I have very little to add to that title. The fun begins at the 5:00 mark.

  16. Larry Bird to remain with Pacers

    May 10, 2011, 5:51 PM EDT

    Pacers owner Herb Simon has decided to keep Larry Bird around as team president. It took a few weeks for the Pacers to get around to making this decision, but they finally got there and announced it on Tuesday. “I’m quite pleased with the success we experienced this past season and pleased with the direction…

  17. Pacers take time with Vogel, so he interviews with Houston

    May 6, 2011, 11:05 AM EDT

    Vogel

    If the Indiana Pacers don’t bring back interim Frank Vogel as coach, they are making a mistake. But before they can be bothered with Vogel, team president Larry Bird needs to sit down with owner Herb Simon and figure out who is running the team next season. And figure out the direction they want to…

  18. Pacers coach Vogel likely to get interim tag removed

    Apr 29, 2011, 2:04 PM EDT

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    Most times, the “interim” tag for a head coach is the kiss of death. It means you’ve taken over a team midseason already facing enough turmoil and losing that your predecessor was jettisoned. Usually management has another plan in mind but has to wait until the offseason to execute it. Often the players see the…

  19. Pacers coach Vogel: Win Game 5 and we win the series

    Apr 26, 2011, 3:01 PM EDT

    Pacers' head coach Vogel reacts during the first half of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference first round playoff basketball game against the Bulls in Chicago

    Because what the Pacers really want to do is give the Bulls some real motivation, we give you Pacers coach Frank Vogel, speaking at Tuesday’s shootaround (as quoted by several members of the media): “We feel like if we win this game tonight, we’ll win the series.” It sounds like he took the brown acid…

  20. Report: Former Cavs coach Mike Brown heads Pacers list

    Mar 11, 2011, 5:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavilers v Boston Celtics

    It’s not fair — it’s on the players, not him — but Frank Vogel is not coming back as the Pacers head coach next season. He is this season’s Kim Hughes — good guy, good coach, thrown in an impossible situation and not brought back because he could not herd cats. So who is next?…

  21. Pacers teammates almost come to blows, Bird blames them not coach

    Mar 11, 2011, 12:31 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Phoenix Suns

    For the past 10 days, the Indiana Pacers have been the worst team in the NBA. It’s not just that they are 0-5, they have looked terrible getting there. As we pointed you to this morning in our one liners, the Pacers have had the lead just 3.4 percent of the time in those games…

  22. People happy that Jim O’Brien is out include Tyler Hansbrough

    Feb 1, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    Tyler Hansbrough, Amir Johnson

    Among the laundry list complaints about Jim O’Brien in Indiana was his constant tinkering with the lineup. Players like routine. O’Brien kept changing the rotations nightly. Frustration ensued. O’Brien’s gone, Frank Vogel is in and the rotations are settled. That means Tyler Hansbrough is headed to the bench — and he’s fine with that. He…

  23. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Indiana looks good for new coach… or they played Toronto

    Feb 1, 2011, 8:17 AM EDT

    Vogel

    What you missed while surfing huge waves at night while wearing an LED vest…. Pacers 104, Raptors 93: That was the most relaxed and loose the Pacers have looked since early in the season. The question becomes is that because of Frank Vogel being the coach instead of Jim O’Brien, or because the Raptors are…
