弗兰克·沃格尔在印第安纳波利斯度过了将近10年的时间,最初作为助理教练,而后成为了主教练。曾几何时,他是NBA最年轻的主教练。现在的他更成熟,也更聪明,能够依靠自己在录像室和场边训练球员的经验。他一直在基层和球员们共事,从未担任过更高的职务。

由于球队无法越过历史最佳球员之一詹姆斯这一关,步行者最终终结了沃格尔在球队的时光。步行者两次挺进了分区决赛,而两次都被勒布朗·詹姆斯的热火队击败。
“如果你不能打败他们,那就加入他们。”

今年45岁的弗兰克·沃格尔在周四面试了湖人新主帅这一职位,而在周六前他已经接受了3年的签约合同。在这里我将介绍关于他25件你需要知道的事情。

1.在一年多前被步行者解雇后,沃格尔和他的家人继续留在奥兰多。这么做很大部分是出于家庭稳定方面的考虑,假设他在2019年找到新的工作,他的女儿可能要在过去四年里搬三次家,留在奥兰多就无需担忧这样的情况。他最大的女儿Alexa刚上高中,Ariana刚读完七年级。

2.在印第安纳州的最后几年里,沃格尔会抽出时间执教女儿们的足球队。

3.拉里·伯德在2016年里没有选择沃格尔作为步行者主教练,他想为球队寻找不同的声音。很快,有很多支寻求新教练的球队都表现出了对沃格尔的兴趣。在和魔术达成协议前,他还面试了灰熊和尼克斯,这份协议使他的薪水翻倍(还包括免除州所得税的好处)。然而,因为内特·麦克米兰被提升为步行者主帅,沃格尔无法如愿从步行者那儿带走助手去奥兰多。

4.沃格尔曾有机会成为电视分析员,但他志在执教,所以对这方面他只是稍有涉猎,在ESPN和NBA电视台上出现过几次而已。他每天都密切关注比赛,和联盟中的教练们保持紧密联系,同时他也关注自己的健康。过去这个赛季刚开始的时候火箭队有找过他,希望他以火箭队的防守教练身份加入德安东尼的教练团。

5.沃格尔的第一次主教练机会是在2011年1月,在吉姆·奥布莱恩于赛季中期被解雇后。那个赛季步行者赢的比赛比输的多(20胜18负)并最终闯进了季后赛。

6.这不是沃格尔第一次执教詹姆斯,他在2014年全明星赛上也执教过,当时步行者一跃打出了球队历史最佳的开局战绩。之后他们连续第三年在季后赛中被詹姆斯带领的热火队打败。

7.沃格尔在新泽西州的怀尔德伍德长大,他的父亲是一名打字员,他母亲在当地的一所高中上班。

8.怀尔德伍德在2014年退役了沃格尔的22号球衣。“很多人质疑我的能力,”他当时说道,“正是那时候,我明白了持之以恒的珍贵,并且学会不去理会那些质疑你的声音。”

9.沃格尔最喜欢的球员是J博士。他是一名忠实的费城老鹰队球迷。他喜欢打高尔夫,虽然他很少有闲暇时间去高尔夫球场。

10.沃格尔在三级联盟的Juniata学院开始打大学篮球,但后来转学到肯塔基大学,这样他能在Rick Pitino手下学习,他与Pitino的相遇是他专门跑到五星篮球训练营中有意制造的。他成为了球队管理员,后来在后备队伍中打球。他的部分角色就是让Pitino训他话,这对于沃格尔来说正是完美吸取教练经验的方法,他可以接收 Pitino说的所有事情。

11.沃格尔后来跟着Pitino去了凯尔特人,在录像剪辑室开始了自己的NBA职业生涯。这段工作期间他遇到了他的妻子Jen。

  1. 现任76人助理教练奥布莱恩是沃格尔一个很亲近的朋友和导师。沃格尔在肯塔基、凯尔特人、76人和步行者期间都在奥布莱恩手下工作。

13.沃格尔明白作为主教练你需要同时扮演心理咨询师的角色。“我觉得我就像拥有一个心理学学位一样,”他在2014年时说过,“这也是执教的一部分。”

14.沃格尔不玩推特。“这些东西,我感觉自己的生活早就公之于众了,”他几年前跟我这么说道,“反正大家好像都已经知道我在做什么了。”

15.沃格尔没有在NBA打过球,所以他重视教练团队里要至少有一名前NBA球员。在步行者的时候,他雇佣了布莱恩·肖,后者在两年后离开步行者,去掘金开启了自己第一次主教练生涯,他还雇佣了内特·麦克米兰。但是他在步行者时期只允许有三名助教,而与之相对的卢克·沃顿有6名。

16.为了缓解更衣室气氛并激励球员,沃格尔在和球队一起看录像时经常会混入一些好玩的视频。例如他之前放了David Letterman在1986年的“愚人花招”节目还有Rocky的短片。

17.沃格尔在媒体面前会显得很自如,并且很贴心。他在2014年获得鲁迪·汤姆贾诺维奇奖,这个奖每年会颁发给那些与媒体和球迷相处得很好的主教练。

18.在社区关系和品牌发展上,沃格尔会做湖人所需要的一切事情。他理解,并且也能胜任这方面的工作。

19.沃格尔与中锋罗伊·希伯特两个一起掌握了垂直起跳防守的技巧,这种方法能让防守者在禁区内垂直起跳阻挡对手投篮。

20.沃格尔有着敏锐的防守思维和强烈的分析兴趣。当强调防守时,他想要球员在场上强迫对方失误,让对手尽可能投出糟糕的投篮选择。在2013年和2014年,步行者的防守效率领跑联盟。

21.在史蒂文斯接受凯尔特人主教练工作前,沃格尔和这位印第安纳本地人并没有太多交集。在2013年奥兰多夏季联赛期间,他们两个相约吃晚餐,这才使得史蒂文斯可以和沃格尔询问关于转换和执教的问题。自那以后,这两位教练关系日益密切,在过去这个赛季里,沃格尔密切关注着史蒂文斯和凯尔特人的表现。

22.虽然别人常常把他描述为一个乐观主义者,但沃格尔认为自己是一个现实主义者。他不允许质疑在球队中蔓延,并且推崇团结精神。在这方面,他将坚持不懈支持自己的球员。

23.保罗·乔治曾如此评价沃格尔:“生命中对我影响最大的人之。

24.大卫·韦斯特对沃格尔“不可动摇的乐观主义和信念”的评价,“无论你打的好还是坏,他都不会动摇自己对于你能力的信念和信任,当所有事情都顺风顺水,你打出了最佳表现时,你能打的多好。这些都不会改变。他能让所有人都保持活力并参与到战斗中,这样的能力一直是他的支柱。”

25.伊恩·马辛米(现奇才中锋)评价道:“弗兰克是那些真正亲近球员的教练之一。我们能得到他百分百的支持,而且我认为更衣室里所有人都愿意为他做任何事。我们真的可以随时为他而战。”

Twenty-five things to know about new Lakers head coach Frank Vogel
Scott Agness

Frank Vogel spent almost a decade in Indianapolis, first as an assistant coach and then head coach. He was, at one point, the youngest coach in the NBA. Now he’s older, wiser and able to lean on his experiences that began in the video room and on the court training players. He’s never been above working hands-on with his players.

His time with the Pacers ultimately ended in Indy because of the team’s inability to get past one of the best players of all time. Twice they made it to the conference finals and both times they were shut down by LeBron James’ Miami Heat.
If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

Frank Vogel, 45, interviewed for the Lakers’ head-coaching position on Thursday, and by Saturday, he had agreed to terms on a three-year deal. Here are 25 things to know about the Lakers’ new head coach.

  1. Vogel and his family remained in Orlando after he was fired just over a year ago. That was mostly done for the stability of his family so that his daughters wouldn’t have to potentially move three times in four years, assuming he took another job in 2019. His oldest daughter, Alexa, started high school and Arianna is completing seventh grade.

  2. During his final few years in Indy, Vogel spent time coaching each of his daughters’ soccer teams.

  3. Larry Bird moved on from Vogel as Pacers head coach in 2016 seeking a new voice for the team. Immediately, there was interest in Vogel from numerous franchises seeking a new coach. He interviewed for teams such as the Memphis Grizzlies and New York Knicks before agreeing to a deal with the Orlando Magic that more than doubled his salary (and included the benefit of no state income tax). However, because Nate McMillan was promoted to Pacers head coach, Vogel wasn’t able to take any of his assistants to Orlando as he had hoped.

  4. Vogel had opportunities to be a TV analyst, but his heart is in coaching so he only dabbled in it, making a few appearances on ESPN and NBA TV. He closely studied games daily and kept in close contact with coaches across the league, all while he focused on his health. The Rockets reached out to him earlier this past season about joining Mike D’Antoni’s staff as the defensive coordinator.

  5. His first head-coaching opportunity came in January 2011 after Jim O’Brien was fired midseason. The Pacers won more games than they lost to finish the season (20-18) and reached the playoffs.

  6. This won’t be the first time that Vogel has coached LeBron James. He did so at the 2014 All-Star Game after the Pacers jumped out to their best start in franchise history. They then lost to the James-led Heat for the third straight postseason.

  7. Growing up in Wildwood, N.J., Vogel’s father was a typist and his mother worked at the local high school.

  8. Wildwood High School retired his No. 22 jersey in 2014. “A lot of people doubted me,” he said then. “It was then I learned the value of persistence and not listening to those that doubt you.”

  9. His favorite player was Dr. J. He’s a big Philadelphia Eagles fan. He enjoys golfing even though he rarely has much free time to hit the course.

  10. Vogel started playing college ball at Div. III Juniata College, but later transferred to the University of Kentucky so he could learn under Rick Pitino, whom he strategically met at Five-Star Basketball Camp. He became a team manager and later played on the JV team. His role, in part, was to drive Pitino to speeches — which became a perfect setting to pick Pitino’s brain and absorb everything that was said.

  11. Vogel then followed Pitino to the Celtics, beginning his NBA career in the video room. During this stint in Boston, he met his wife, Jen.

  12. O’Brien, currently a 76ers assistant coach, is a close friend and mentor. Vogel worked under him while with UK, Celtics, 76ers and Pacers.

  13. Vogel understands that playing psychologist comes with the territory as head coach. “I feel like I have a degree in it,” he said in 2014. “That’s part of coaching.”

  14. He is not on Twitter. “All that stuff, I kind of feel like my life’s in the public eye anyway,” he told me years ago. “Everybody kind of knows what I’m doing anyway.”

  15. Vogel did not play in the NBA, so he values having at least one coach on staff who did. In Indiana, he hired Brian Shaw, who left after two years for his first head-coaching gig in Denver, and Nate McMillan. But he was only allowed to have three assistants in Indiana; in contrast, Luke Walton had six.

  16. In an effort to lighten and motivate the room, he often mixes in playful videos while going over tape with the team. Such examples include his “Stupid Human Trick” from David Letterman in 1986 and clips from Rocky.

  17. He’s comfortable and considerate in media settings. In 2014, he was the recipient of the Rudy Tomjanovich Award, which annually recognizes a head coach for excellence in cooperation with media and fans.

  18. He’ll do whatever the Lakers need in terms of community relations and pushing the brand. He understands — and excels — in that element of the business.

  19. Together with center Roy Hibbert, the two mastered verticality, which allows the defender to go straight up to contest a shot even while inside the restricted area.

  20. Vogel has a sharp defensive mind and has a strong appetite for analytics. When emphasizing defense, he wants to force turnovers and opponents into the worst shot available. The Pacers led the NBA in defensive rating in both 2013 and 2014.

  21. He did not have much of a relationship with Indiana native Brad Stevens before Stevens took the Celtics job. Down in Orlando for summer league in 2013, the two met for dinner, which allowed for Stevens to ask about the transition and coaching pros. Since then, the two coaches have grown closer with Vogel watching Stevens and the Celtics intently this past season.

  22. As others often describe him as an optimist, Vogel views himself as a realist. He doesn’t allow for doubt to seep in and pushes a togetherness mentality. To that end, he relentlessly supports his players.

  23. Paul George once called him “one of the most influential men in my life.”

  24. David West on the “unwavering optimism and belief” from Vogel: “It doesn’t matter how well you played or how bad you played, he doesn’t waver on his belief and trust in how well you can, when everything is right and you’re playing at your best, how good you can be. That hasn’t changed. That’s been a mainstay of his — the ability to keep guys afloat, keep them engaged in the fight.”

  25. Ian Mahinmi: “Frank is one of those coaches that are really close to his players. We have his back 100 percent and I think that everybody in this locker room is willing to do whatever for Frank. We’re really ready to go to war for him.”
