Unfortunately, the end of his coaching career was less like Elvis and hypnotizing pelvic thrusts and more like Elvis on the toilet eating fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
After an almost-historic 0-16 start to the season, the Nets' front office had enough, and told Frank to not bother coming into work on Monday.
They couldn't have waited until Sunday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers was done? It was New Jersey's fourth and final away game of their road trip, and Frank was already in the area, but the Nets' front office had seen enough, apparently. Sadly, management prevented him from collecting his second professional basketball record -- most consecutive losses in NBA history.
Frank started his coaching career in 2004 with a magical 13-0 run, an NBA record for most consecutive wins to start a coaching career.
The former Nets coach compiled a 225-241 record, 16 games under .500, which is, oddly enough, exactly how many games under .500 New Jersey was this year.
