Default Putrid start puts Nets' Frank on hot seat

The New Jersey Nets, off to one of the worst starts in NBA history, are reportedly close to firing head coach Lawrence Frank.

The Nets, according to Yahoo! Sports, are expected to relieve Frank of his duties after the team returns to New Jersey following a Sunday night game against the Lakers.

A loss in that game will tie the club for the worst start in league history with the 1988-89 expansion Miami Heat and the LA Clippers in the lockout- shortened 1999 season.

The report indicates Nets general manager Kiki Vandeweghe will take over as interim coach.

Frank, the longest tenured coach in the Eastern Conference, signed a multi- year extension with New Jersey following the 2006-07 season, the fourth straight year he led the club to the playoffs.

The Nets regressed to back-to-back 34-48 campaigns the past two seasons, however, as Frank's career record fell to 225-241.

Frank, who is 18-20 in four playoff appearances, was named the Nets' head coach on June 21 of 2004 after first being chosen as the interim head coach in January of that year.

The Teaneck, New Jersey native began his NBA coaching career with 13 consecutive wins, an NBA record for most victories in a row by a head coach to begin a coaching career.

exactly. funny thing is the guy who will replace him (at least for the time being) is the one that is responsible for the putrid roster, kiki vandeweigh

the lil general will get a second chance somewhere, and will probably be a great coach if he has good or better talent
