THE LOS ANGELES (LA) Lakers fired head coach Frank Vogel on Monday after three seasons.
The move was expected since the Lakers’ bid to reach the postseason ended last week.
“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Frank both on and off the court,” Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said in the press release. “Frank is a great coach and a good man. We will forever be grateful to him for his work in guiding us to the 2019-20 NBA championship. This is an incredibly difficult decision to make, but one we feel is necessary at this point. All of us here wish Frank and his wonderful family all the best for the future.” — Reuters
