Phoenix Suns Hire Frank Vogel as Head Coach

The Phoenix Suns have officially hired former Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel as their new head coach. Sources close to the team reported that the deal was in its final stages, and it has now been confirmed.

Vogel is a seasoned coach with a proven track record of success in the NBA. He led the Indiana Pacers to back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals in 2013 and 2014, and won a championship as an assistant coach with the Boston Celtics in 2008.

The Suns have been searching for a strong coach to lead their team, and according to poll results from The Arizona Republic, fans were split between Kevin Young, Doc Rivers, and Vogel. But now, it seems that Vogel was the clear choice for the organization.

According to Bright Side Of The Sun, the Suns have never needed a strong coach more. The team has struggled in recent seasons and has not made the playoffs since the 2009-2010 season. With the addition of Vogel, there is hope that the Suns can turn things around and become a competitive force in the NBA once again.

Breaking News from 8 Points, 9 Seconds reported that Vogel signed a multi-year deal with the Suns, with exact terms of the contract yet to be released.

Fans are eagerly anticipating Vogel’s debut as head coach, as the team heads into an uncertain offseason. The Suns finished the 2020-2021 season with a 51-21 record, but were eliminated in the playoffs by the Milwaukee Bucks. With Vogel at the helm, the Suns are hoping to make a deep run in the postseason next year.
