Indiana Pacers coach Frank Vogel locked up a little security on Monday as the team solidified their head coaching position for the near future by extending Vogel's contract. How long? How much? The team did not disclose those terms.
Since earning the job after taking over from Jim O'Brien on an interim basis to end the 2010-11 season, Vogel has been working on one-year deals the past two seasons. From the Pacers release on the signing:
"This is a good deal for Frank and the franchise," said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Donnie Walsh. "Frank has done a great job turning our team around since he became coach and deserves the chance to continue the work he and his staff have started."
