HoopsHype Frank Vogel rumors
The Pacers now have their second five-game losing streak of the season, with no relief in sight from the schedule. Vogel already has tried six starting lineups, mostly because of the loss or return of injured players. Could another one be forthcoming? “You reconsider everything, every day,” he said. “I believe in the stability of rotation, but we're not going to overreact. We've been in a lot of these games that we've lost. It's a very tough stretch of our schedule. We're battling through a lot of different situations. Yes, we will consider it everyday, but it's unlikely to change now.” NBA.com
The Indiana Pacers announced Wednesday that Head Coach Frank Vogel has signed a multi-year contract extension. Per team policy, terms of the contact were not released. NBA.com
“I’m excited for the opportunity to continue my tenure as Pacers’ coach,” said Vogel. “It’s an honor to represent this franchise and lead this team. I look forward to the challenge ahead. I’m grateful to have had good, coachable teams along with coaching staffs that have been second to none.” Vogel will be available to the media after Thursday’s practice at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Keep in mind, there’s many new components as well as new roles for players already on roster. For those reasons, and more, I’m calling the season “The Year of Discovery.” I asked Vogel if he would he like to have a new contract before the season, which most certainly would help ease the burden. “I want to coach here forever,” Vogel said last month. “So I don’t think it eases any burden or anything like that, or changes the job at all. I certainly want to be back as the coach here for years to come.” Vigilant Sports
A whole lot of Indiana Pacers players -- and coach Frank Vogel -- were together celebrating over the weekend. But it had nothing to do with basketball. It was a wedding. Pacers center Roy Hibbert married his longtime girlfriend Valerie Cooke on Saturday. The wedding to 27-year-old Cooke, who he met at Georgetown University, took place in Indiana. Though the exact location is unknown. Indianapolis Star
