The Phoenix Suns are planning to hire Frank Vogel as their head coach and social media had some very different reactions to the news.
Some people raved about the hire to replace Monty Williams in Phoenix, while others were not fans of the move.
Check out how NBA Twitter reacted to the news about Frank Vogel taking over as the head coach of the NBA's Phoenix Suns.
I'm kinda surprised it's not Kevin Young after all, but Frank Vogel is a good coach. Proven it in multiple places and was the scapegoat with a bad Lakers roster after winning a title. We know the defense will be capable. Question is what the Suns will do offensively

Frank Vogel is one of the best defensive tacticians in the NBA. Consistently has his teams elite on that end of the floor.
Vogel also puts a heavy emphasis on rim protecting bigs (ex: Roy Hibbert and Anthony Davis).
The big question now pivots to whether Deandre Ayton is a fit…

If you’re gonna hire Frank Vogel that means the Suns are going to have to build the roster a certain way for him to succeed, and we should get some good offensive assistants to help him out.

If Kevin Young stays on as top assistant then this Frank Vogel hire is one I love!

Big opportunity for Frank Vogel in Phoenix. He’ll do well at navigating the dynamics — from an eager new owner to managing superstars like he did in LA. And he’ll be a great spokesman to help grow the team.
Now, it’s important that he’s able to hire his own staff this time.

The Suns fired Monty Williams just to hire Frank Vogel. LOL.

Frank Vogel is going to do really good stuff with the Suns. I'd even think about keeping DeAndre Ayton. I bet Vogel could get the best basketball we've seen out of Ayton yet.

Good for Frank Vogel. I'm sure he'll have Suns as a defensive presence

Suns new coach is Frank Vogel
431-389 career record
49-39 in the playoffs
NBA championship with the Lakers( bubble championship 2020)
Strong defensive minded coach.
Lakers fired him because of the failed Westbrook trade. He was the scapegoat IMO.

Wish LA didn't fire Frank Vogel for things that weren't his fault in his last year here in LA.
Good for him to get another job. https://t.co/lPgL3lGx8P

Did the Suns upgrade? Not sure why you fire Monty Williams only to hire Frank Vogel. The NBA coaching carousel is one of the strangest things.

Imagine firing Monty Williams to hire Frank Vogel. Imagine.
