Jeff Van Gundy: Vogel Deserves New Deal

Basketball Insiders

Published

Jeff Van Gundy can be the ultimate advocate for coaches, but he made a good point on Wednesday. He said that rather than be on a hot seat, Frank Vogel should be given a contract extension and a raise for leading a team so obviously flawed and fragile as far as he has.

There has not been a rush to praise Vogel in the months since the All-Star break, but with all we have learned about the Pacers, Van Gundy makes a good point. He helped make this team look like a legitimate contender. He made it look better than it is.

But there is a general rule about public perception of coaches. Until a coach wins a championship, to the public, they lose games and players win them.
