After five-and-a-half years leading the Indiana Pacers, Frank Vogel is out as head coach.

Pacers Team President Larry Bird announced the decision to not retain Vogel, whose contract was up after the 2015-16 season, at a Thursday press conference.

Vogel had a 250-and-181 record (a .580 winning percentage) with the Pacers in the regular season, but his teams were just 28-and-26 in the playoffs.
