Earlier this week, the Indiana Pacers surprisingly fired head coach Frank Vogel after six seasons with the team. It was a shock to many around the NBA, including superstar forward Paul George.
George has been with Vogel his entire NBA career after coming in as a first-round pick in the 2010 NBA Draft. He took to Instagram to send one final thank you to his former coach.
To one of the most influential men in my life! Our relationship and love doesn’t end here.. Thank you for the journey and the memories we shared together! This pic sums up our relationship the best.. You talk I listen… And we figure it out together! Look forward to the wink the first basket I make while you’re coaching against me #Togetherness
During his career with the Pacers, Frank Vogel had a 250-141 record with five playoff appearances and two appearances in the Eastern Conference finals in 2013 and 2014.
It has been a rough couple of days for George and the rest of the team, but they will likely be able to find their next head coach soon.
