Pacers Extend Coach Vogel’s Contract
Frank Vogel has signed a contract extension with the Indiana Pacers.
“This is a good deal for Frank and the franchise,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh. “Frank has done a great job turning our team around since he became coach and deserves the chance to continue the work he and his staff have started.”
Vogel has compiled 62-38 record through 100 games coached in the NBA, swiftly impacting the culture around the Pacers.
Vogel helped lead the Pacers to the Eastern Conference semifinals a season ago and has guided them to a 20-14 record so far this season, despite the void left by Danny Granger’s absence.
“I’m honored that Donnie, Kevin (General Manager Pritchard) and Mr. Simon (owner Herb Simon) have such belief and faith in me to be their coach in the foreseeable future,” Vogel said in a statement. “We’ve established a great connection with our community the last two years, both on and off the court and I look forward to continuing that.”
