Not too many people know who Frank Vogel is. The only things we do know is that he has been alongside Jim O’Brien since the mid-90s when they were both assistant coaching under Rick Pitino, he watches a lot of game tape and … that’s about all we do know about the new Pacers interim coach who will lead an NBA team into battle for the first time ever tonight.
The below video doesn’t tell us a whole lot more, but we will certainly be learning plenty in the following days as Vogel won’t have an easy first week on the job. The team plays four games between tonight and Sunday. (Toronto tonight, @Cleveland on Wednesday, Portland on Friday and @New Jersey on Sunday.)
And here’s the new coach’s official introduction to the media. (via Indy Star)
