For the first time in his career, Frank Vogel is coaching in the NBA Finals. He’s been close before, but finally reached the game’s biggest stage in his first year as the head coach of the Los Angeles Lakers. Having superstars such as LeBron James and Anthony Davis has certainly helped, too.

Vogel, much like many of his peers in the National Basketball Association, has worked his way up the ranks to get here. He started as a video coordinator and was an assistant coach for years before earning his shot to lead his own basketball team.

At every step of his professional journey, his wife Jenifer has been right there.

Frank Paul Vogel was born on June 21, 1973 in Wildwood Crest, New Jersey. He was a star from an early age. His basketball (and toothbrush) skills were featured on Late Night with David Letterman when he was young before starring at Wildwood High School.

Vogel then took his talents to Juniata College — a Division III school in Pennsylvania — and finished at the University of Kentucky, where he was the Wildcats’ student manager under head coach Rick Pitino. That’s where this run as basketball coach truly started and how he met his future wife.

When Pitino was hired by the Boston Celtics, Vogel followed. He started as a video coordinator for a few seasons before finally earning a promotion to become an assistant coach. He met Jenifer Sia during that time, and the rest is history.

The happy couple was married in 2002 and have been together ever since. Neither one of them is active on social media.

Vogel has been an assistant coach with the Celtics, Philadelphia 76ers, and Indiana Pacers under Jim O’Brien, as well as the head coach of the Pacers, Orlando Magic and now the Los Angeles Lakers during their marriage.

Frank Vogel’s Kids

Lakers coach Frank Vogel and his wife Jenifer have two daughters: Arianna and Alexa.

Although he’s not around much, especially during the NBA Bubble in Orlando, Vogel spends as much time with his family as he can. His family, for the most part, has stayed out of the spotlight.

Vogel has led Paul George to the Eastern Conference Finals twice as the Indiana Pacers head coach. He’s coached the NBA All-Star Game twice. He won the Western Conference Finals against the Denver Nuggets and is now coaching in his first NBA Finals.

You better believe his family is cheering for him to finish the playoffs strong and bring home a championship, too.
