The Pacers finally saw enough of head coach Jim O’Brien as they fired him this morning. The Pacers were only 17-27 (38.6%) so far this season and that’s just not good enough to get the job done. The Pacers were 121-169 (41.7%) in O’Brien’s four years in charge. The Pacers tired of O’Brien’s handling of the younger players, especially Tyler Hansbrough and Roy Hibbert. The Pacers have elevated 37-year old Frank Vogel to O’Brien’s old spot on an interim basis for the rest of this year. Vogel has never been a head coach in the NBA but he has been an assistant coach for 8 years. He could get the full time gig if he can get the Pacers to fight for a playoff spot the rest of the way while using some of the younger players.
