According to a report by Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic, Frank Vogel was the Phoenix Suns’ top choice for their head coach position all along. Despite competition from other finalists, including Nick Nurse and Doc Rivers, Vogel was always the preferred candidate.
The Suns were impressed by Vogel’s championship-winning experience with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2020. With Monty Williams being relieved of his duties, the Suns have secured Vogel to lead the team.
The hiring of Vogel signifies the Suns’ determination to continue their pursuit of a championship, building upon the success of their previous season.
