Lawrence Frank local head coach most likely to be fired

Jamie Samuelsen, writing for the Detroit Free Press, ranked Tom Izzo, John Beilein, Brady Hoke, Mark Dantonio, Jim Leyland, Mike Babcock, Jim Schwartz and Lawrence Frank by

I’m not sure any coach works harder than Frank, but the facts are the facts. Pistons coaches just don’t last very long. Fans aren’t flocking to the Palace to watch this team play. And owner Tom Gores can’t have a ton of patience when it comes to either Frank or GM Joe Dumars. Still, the Pistons play good defense on most nights and rebound the heck out of the ball. They’ve been playing better since the acquisition of Jose Calderon but still suffer humiliating losses like they did over the past week and a half to Memphis and New Orleans at home.

I completely agree with Samuelsen. Frank will likely finish this season, but I’d call it even money he begins the next.
