The Pacers held a press conference Wednesday morning to make the announcement after Vogel led the team to a 20-18 regular season record and spirited first-round playoff exit to the Chicago Bulls this past season -- the Pacers first playoff appearance since 2006.
"We're very happy to have Frank as our coach," Pacers president of basketball operations Larry Bird said in a press release. "As I stated after the season, I was in no hurry regarding the coach, mainly because I knew I had a good candidate in Frank. But we wanted to get through the draft and I wanted to have numerous conversations with Frank about a staff that will cover all areas. I feel strongly he is doing that and this coaching staff, as a whole, will help this franchise continue to move forward."
There was no official announcement of Vogel's staff at the press conference, though him hiring a new crop of assistants was long said to be one of the conditions if he stayed in Indiana. The first new member on Vogel's staff is expected to be former Los Angeles Lakers assistant Brian Shaw as his associate head coach.
