Paul George posts touching message to former Pacers coach Frank Vogel

May 8, 2016

For the first time in his NBA career, Indiana Pacers star Paul George will have a head coach not named Frank Vogel. The Pacers opted last week not to renew Vogel's deal despite guiding the team to the playoffs five of the six years he was head coach.

George, a three-time All-Star under Vogel, posted a photo of himself and his former coach, thanking Vogel for being "one of the most influential men in my life!"

"To one of the most influential men in my life," George writes. "Our relationship and love doesn't end here.. Thank you for the journey and the memories we shared together! This pic sums up our relationship the best.. You talk I listen... And we figure it out together! Look forward to the wink the first basket I make while you're coaching against me."
