Laker’s dealings with Frank Vogel are already damaging their search for a coach

The Los Angeles Lakers have parted ways with Frank Vogel, but the way he was fired could come back to bite them.

The Los Angeles Lakers’ season was heavily criticized, and unfortunately, the brunt of that criticism was thrown on former head coach Frank Vogel. Although analysts said Vogel shouldn’t be blamed entirely and that LeBron James and Russell Westbrook are partly to blame for a season’s disaster, Vogel was fired as head coach nonetheless.

Vogel’s dismissal was inevitable. But the way the team and front office fired him could lead to future problems.

In particular, it seems as if the way the shot played out could be an obstacle in the team’s coaching search to replace Vogel.

How Frank Vogel’s departure could prove to be a problem for the Lakers

On April 11, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted that Vogel had been fired from his position as Lakers head coach.

However, Vogel was unaware that he was being fired. He broke the news in his post-game interview following LA’s 146-141 win in the regular-season finals against the Denver Nuggets.

The way the Lakers handled Vogel’s shot drew criticism from the media. ESPN’s Richard Jefferson called the Lakers cowards over Fox Sports.

“But let’s talk about how cowardly it is. woj [Adrian Wojnarowski] tweeted a minute after the game that Frank Vogel was fired and then you want to sit here and talk about trust and this and that. The Lakers didn’t even have the decency to tell the coach who gave them the title 18 months ago that they would let him go.”

The Athletic’s Bill Oram also stated that the organization should be embarrassed and potential candidates should pay attention to how Vogel has been treated.

One potential candidate who has garnered attention and may no longer be an option for the Lakers is Jazz head coach Quin Snyder. Corresponding LA times‘ Broderick Taylor, Snyder less interested in head coaching position because Vogel was fired New York Post.

Other potential candidates could follow Snyder and decide they no longer wish to be considered for the position. In this case, the Lakers have very limited choices. And they won’t blame anyone but themselves. Laker’s dealings with Frank Vogel are already damaging their search for a coach
