Frank Vogel agreed to be the top assistant to Lue’s staff before Tyronn Lue and the Los Angeles Lakers couldn’t agree on a deal to become head coach in 2019.
Vogel was offered the job of head coach, but he reached out to Lou for his blessing.
“Someone will take on the job,” Lou told Vogel, according to a source familiar with the phone who spoke to Athletic. “why?”
Vogel interviewed on May 9, the day after Lou withdrew. Vogel hadn’t interviewed the Lakers yet, as he had only been in contact with Lou for his assistant job.
Lou became an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers under the Dock Rivers and is now the head coach.
Vogel won the Lakers title in his first season.
