With the Lakers head coach set to be fired, we take a look at Frank Vogel’s wife Jenifer as well as their daughters, Arianna and Alexa.

The Lakers have had an abysmal season, and it appears as though head coach Frank Vogel is about to pay the price. According to multiple reports, Vogel is yet to be fired on Monday (11 April).

The former Indiana Pacers coach lead the Lakers to the 2020 NBA Championship in the Orlando Bubble, but injuries, inconsistency, and an ageing roster have hampered the Lakers this season. They finished one game behind the Spurs for 10th place in the Western Conference and missed out on the final spot in the play-in tournament.

Vogel set to be fired on Monday

After a win against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday night, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that it would be Frank Vogel’s final game for the franchise.

Woj tweeted: ‘Frank Vogel has coached his final game for the Lakers, a decision that’s expected to be shared with him as soon as Monday, sources tell ESPN. Lakers’ search expected to be lengthy and expansive with no clear initial frontrunner.’

When asked about the report in Sunday’s postgame press conference, Vogel said: “I haven’t been told s*** and I’m going to enjoy tonight’s game, celebrate what these young guys did in terms of scratching and clawing and getting back in this game and getting a W, and we’ll deal with tomorrow, tomorrow.”

What we know about Frank Vogel’s wife and their family

Frank Vogel’s wife is Jenifer Vogel (nee Lynne Sia). The two met while Frank was working as an assistant for the Boston Celtics and they tied the knot in 2002.

Jenifer has kept out of the spotlight during Frank’s coaching career and is not active on social media. Jennifer has supported her husband throughout though, looking after their family as Frank often spends time travelling.

The couple have two daughters, Arianna and Alexa, who are teenagers now. Both of the girls are passionate about soccer and Frank even coached one of Alexa’s games in fourth grade.

“It was great, but I think he should stick to basketball,” Alexa said at the time. When asked who yelled the most when they were watching the Pacers on TV at home both girls reportedly said it was their mother, Jennifer.

Alexa is 18-years-old and, going off her TikTok, is studying at college. She often posts TikToks of her routine and what she gets up to day to day.
