The Phoenix Suns have named Frank Vogel as the team’s new head coach. In his first season as Lakers head coach in 2019-20, Vogel helmed the team with LeBron James and Anthony Davis to the West’s best regular season record and a 16-5 playoff run on the way to the championship.

“We are excited to announce Frank as our new head coach and I look forward to partnering with him as we elevate our program,” said President of Basketball Operations and General Manager James Jones. “Frank is one of the best coaches in the game, a proven winner and has led some of the league’s toughest defenses over the last decade. He is the right leader and program builder to take our team to the next level.”
