Frank Vogel in danger of getting fired as the Los Angeles Lakers head coach?

Frank Vogel is I’m his third season with the Los Angeles Lakers and there’s a chance that it could be his last.

Vogel is reportedly coaching the Lakers on a game-by-game basis.

Some felt Vogel was coaching for his job on Monday in the win bs the Utah Jazz. The Lakers, who are 22-22, play the Indiana Pacers at Crypto.com Arena on Wednesday night, so the game-to-game evaluation will be on hand.

Vogel and lead assistant coach David Fizdale met with Rob Pelinka and Kurt Rambis on how to turn the season around.

Currently, the Lakers are the eighth seed in the Western Conference.
