Frank Vogel hired as the head coach of the Lakers. They went with auction see, and that's pretty hard to pal it. If you're a Lakers fan going with action, see as I said earlier, the two coaching searches in Los Angeles UCLA in the Los Angeles, Lakers planning on co authoring a book on how to conduct a coaching search because both went very very smoothly.
