Frank Vogel Fired 2022: Lakers part ways with head coach after three seasons; GM Rob Pelinka addresses decision

Vogel coached the Lakers to the 2020 championship, but L.A. was the NBA's biggest disappointment this season

Frank Vogel has coached his final game for the Los Angeles Lakers. Vogel was fired by the Lakers on Monday, the team announced

The Lakers, winners of the 2020 NBA championship under Vogel, entered the season as Western Conference favorites

They failed to live up to that mantle due to a combination of injuries, age, a poorly-built roster and mismanagement of that roster, and last Tuesday, they were officially eliminated from playoff contention

They closed the season with a 33-49 record. Now Vogel is paying the price for their failure and has been removed from his position as coach less than two years after leading the Lakers to the title

Today is not going to be a day of finger-pointing and unwinding all the specific reasons,'' Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka said of the decision to move on from Vogel on Monday

We just felt organizationally, at the highest level, it was time for a new voice. ... That's not to say anything against the incredible accomplishments that Frank Vogel has had. He was a great coach here, and he's going to go on to be a great coach somewhere else

This was a disappointing Lakers season at every level,'' Pelinka added. "In the face of disappointment, our fans expect more, and that's in every facet. It starts in the front office led by me, and our ability to construct the right roster
