After taking over for Jim O'Brien and leading the Indiana Pacers to their first playoff berth since 2006, Frank Vogel is about to become the Indiana Pacers' full-time head coach, according to ESPN.com.
Vogel, who broke into the league as a video coordinator with the Boston Celtics, has also worked for the Sixers and Wizards in his coaching career. He became an assistant for the Pacers under O'Brien and took over for him midway through the 2010-11 season. Vogel led the Pacers to a 20-18 record upon taking over.
The Indianapolis Star reported two weeks ago that Lakers assistant Brian Shaw was leaving L.A. to join the Pacers bench.
The Pacers have been active in boosting their talent on the court as well, trading the No. 15 pick, which ended up being Kawhi Leonard, to San Antonio for combo-guard and Indiana native George Hill.
