(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Indiana Pacers President of Basketball Operations Larry Bird says Frank Vogel is still the favorite to become the team’s permanent head coach.

Vogel served as interim head coach after Jim O'Brien was fired on January 30th.

Vogel went 20-18 as head coach and led the Pacers to their first playoff berth in five seasons.

Bird made his comments during a news conference at Conseco Fieldhouse Tuesday morning.

Bird is not ready to hire Vogel, saying he has other candidates he wants to interview before making his final decision.
