What NBA coaches were fired in 2022? Managing a professional sports team is never easy and these NBA coaches fired in 2022 will tell you that. NBA coaches face many challenges week in, week out, whether its' injuries, bad beats, and supernatural performances from opposing teams. However, at a point, the buck must stop somewhere, and that somewhere is the head coach. Not every NBA coach is an All-Timer, and some of the coaches on this list might actually be among the worst NBA coaches of all time. But, who are the best NBA head coaches fired this year? Which NBA coach got the axe too soon? Who deserves another spin around the NBA coaching carousel?
Many would consider Los Angeles Lakers head coach Frank Vogel to be the best NBA coach fired in 2022, having coached the Lakers to an NBA championship in 2020. Then there's Sacramento Kings head coach Alvin Gentry who couldn't turn the team around after taking over as interim head coach last November when Luke Walton was dismissed only 17 games into the 2021-22 NBA season.
Vote up the NBA coaches who deserve another shot on the sidelines, or the NBA coaches you'd love to see your team hire.
