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

“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

Bird and coach Frank Vogel both talked Monday about considering trades, and Bird even suggested he might make a move to get back into the first round. He traded the Pacers' top pick to Phoenix last summer for Luis Scola. But they expect most of the changes to come from the roster that already exists. "I think with internal growth we can, but we're going to look at all the external possibilities as well," Vogel said. "We're going to try and make sure we grow this team in the right direction. We've gone from the first round (in 2011) to the second round (in 2012) to the third round the last two years and now we've got to take that next step next year." USA Today Sports

After consecutive losses in the Eastern Conference finals, Frank Vogel will return to coach the Indiana Pacers next season, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Indiana management has never considered replacing him, sources told Yahoo Sports. Yahoo! Sports

Vogel's job status had become fodder for debate because of an unsteady late-season slide that extended into the playoffs, but Pacers president Larry Bird and general manager Kevin Pritchard have remained strong believers in him, sources said. Yahoo! Sports

Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel didn't mean to set off a frothing Twitter storm after Game 6. But he compared LeBron James to Michael Jordan, and, well, that's enough to boil blood. "It's bitterly disappointing to lose to this team three years in a row, but we're competing against the Michael Jordan of our era, the Chicago Bulls of our era," Vogel said after James scored 25 points and had six assists and four rebounds in Miami's 117-92 victory Friday that eliminated the Pacers in the Eastern Conference finals.
