Hollinger: Coach Frank May Not Be Back in 2010-11

While he’s very likely to last all of the 2009-10 season, Nets head coach Lawrence Frank may be on thin ice according to ESPN’s John Hollinger during a recent chat:

Unless he shows up in a stupor like Shooter from Hoosiers he’ll keep his job because the Nets have no interest in paying two coaches at once. To keep his job beyond this season, however, is a different story. To do that he might need to win in the high 30s or low 40s, and I can’t see that happening with this roster.

I don’t know if I can see the Nets winning that many games this season either, but can Lawrence Frank really be made the scapegoat if the team performs poorly this season? I think if there was any time to fire Frank, it would have been years ago when the “Big Three” was healthy and in place but was still underwhelming in the playoffs. Thoughts anyone?
