The search is over and Joe Dumars has his man. A report by ESPN.com's Marc Stein was released Thursday evening that former New Jersey Nets head coach Lawrence Frank would be the next coach of the Detroit Pistons.
This hiring comes on the heels of a long and arduous search for just the right guy to replace John Kuester. Kuester only lasted two years in the Motor City and had a very rocky tenure. He replaced Michael Curry after one disastrous season.
The Pistons have burned through coaches since the rolling stone Larry Brown left in 2005. It remains to be seen if Frank is the guy to halt this coaching carousel.
