In a move that sent shockwaves through the NBA, the Phoenix Suns announced the firing of head coach Frank Vogel on Thursday. Vogel’s tenure was short-lived, lasting only one season, and his departure was met with a mix of surprise and inevitability.

The Suns’ tumultuous season, marked by high expectations and underwhelming performance, had already hinted at Vogel’s precarious position.

As Evan Sidery noted, “Kevin Durant never felt comfortable within Frank Vogel’s offensive scheme,” and “multiple key players had lost faith in him as their head coach.” When a coach loses the trust of their players, their tenure is often numbered.

Significant roster changes and lofty expectations marked Vogel’s appointment last summer. The team was built to win, and Vogel knew the stakes were high. However, his offensive strategy failed to yield the desired results, reportedly causing frustration among players, including Durant.

In hindsight, the Suns’ decision to hire a defense-minded coach like Vogel to spearhead their offense may have been misguided. As Sidery pointed out, Vogel’s strengths lie in defense, not offense.

According to Sidery, the Suns are “all-in on offensive creativity” with the hiring of Mike Budenholzer.

This bold move indicates a clear plan from the front office, and it remains to be seen if Budenholzer can deliver where Vogel could not. One thing is certain: the Suns are committed to shaking things up and finding a winning formula.
