#4: Lawrence Frank (2011-13)

Lawrence Frank epitomizes the dog days of mediocracy that the Pistons were in during the early 2010's. With his best scoring options being names like Rodney Stuckey, Charlie Villanueva, and Greg Monroe, it's difficult to see any head coach succeed with a roster so poorly constructed. The roster makeup is not solely to blame, however, as Frank did little to nothing to help maximize success.

Being the first head coach hired -and fired- by Tom Gores, Frank had a 54-94 (.365) total record during his tenure in Detroit and showed no real improvement following the dumpster fire that former coach John Kuester left for him. Like I mentioned before, roster structure was not the main problem, as Frank notably played poor rotations and lacked in giving, (who many thought were), better scoring options such as vet Corey Maggette and rookie stud Andre Drummond sufficient playing time to help add to the lackluster win total. This quickly led to his firing after only two seasons in 2013.
