A very disappointing season is over for the Los Angeles Lakers that didn’t make even the Play-In tournament, despite having a roster packed with All-Star power. The first man who pays the price for this failing campaign is coach Frank Vogel who is now officially out of the team.

Per Lakers:

The Los Angeles Lakers have parted ways with Head Coach Frank Vogel.

Vogel was the 27th head coach in franchise history. During his tenure, Vogel compiled a 127-98 (.564) record and led the Lakers to their 17th NBA championship during the 2019-20 season.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Frank both on and off the court,” said Rob Pelinka, the Lakers Vice President of Basketball Operations and General Manager. “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.”
