Frank Vogel out in Indiana after 5-plus seasons

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Frank Vogel will not return as Indiana Pacers coach next season.

Pacers President Larry Bird said Thursday that the team will not renew Vogel's contract for next season, cutting ties with a respected name in the coaching ranks. Bird said he believes it's time for a new voice to lead the Pacers, keeping with his long-held philosophy on short shelf lives for coaches.

"I know it's not going to be a 100 percent popular move," Bird said at a news conference. "But my responsibility is do what's best for the franchise."
