Few subjects can cause a Twitter debate the way the firing of a coach can.
Opinions on social media were somewhat divided after Frank Vogel was fired on Thursday by the Magic, though the majority of tweets suggest that the Magic made a mistake.
Now that some time has passed since the news broke, lets take a look at a sampling of tweets regarding Vogel.....
I better wake up to a “Orlando Magic fire Head Coach Frank Vogel” notification tomorrow— matty (@MattyWorldPiece) April 12, 2018

With the roster he had, Frank Vogel was asked to paint a masterpiece with a box of crayons https://t.co/Dr0MGWOfEY— Orlando Pinstriped Post (@OPPMagicBlog) April 12, 2018
I really wish one day we could separate "team does poorly" with "fire head coach". Frank Vogel may or may not have done a good job with the Magic, but Red Auerbach himself wasn't winning with that mess of a roster.— Derek Bodner (@DerekBodnerNBA) April 12, 2018
Scuttlebutt around the #Magic media room today about Frank Vogel's future in Orlando.— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) April 12, 2018
I didn't realize coaches needed to become trained athletic trainers or ancient spiritual healers, so if he's going to get kicked out after this injury-ravaged then that's pathetic.
Roster was shit but one of truly worst coaches i have ever seen in any sports. No ajdustments whatsoever, outdated...he can light candels for PG every night for earning him millions. Larry was completely right in firing him from Indiana— Neno BK (@neno_bk) April 12, 2018
Frank Vogel: “We’re gonna make the playoffs next year!”— Josiah Johnson (@KingJosiah54) April 12, 2018
Did you see his rotations throughout the entire year? He was trash. Couldn’t even tank right either.— skilly (@skillyskud) April 12, 2018
Saw the Magic fired Frank Vogel. Tough firing a guy after just two years. Even tougher when your highest paid player is Bismack Biyombo.— Jonathan Zaslow (@ZaslowShow) April 12, 2018
.@OrlandoMagic PG DJ Augustin: “You never want to see someone get fired, get traded or cut. I’ve been with Frank (Vogel) for a while ... had him in Indiana & 2 years here & my wife is friends with his wife, so it (stinks). But, at the end of the day, we all know this is a biz.”— John Denton (@JohnDenton555) April 12, 2018
#OrlandoMagic fire Frank Vogel as they embark on 27th season of rebuilding, or so it seems. PS: He's not the problem— George Diaz (@georgediaz) April 12, 2018
Relationships. That is how I measure success. The last 4 years have come with a lot of tough times but everything was made better by the people God put before me. I just may be the most successful person on the planet based on my loose definition of Success . Thanks Orlando! pic.twitter.com/iusPGtwwzL— Jay Hernandez (@RepYourWork) April 12, 2018
Frank Vogel hairline thinks this is a good thing. Orlando had that man stressed holy pic.twitter.com/vAjQNplw7H— (@Dreamville109) April 12, 2018
.@OrlandoMagic G Arron Afflalo: “We all understand from a player’s & coach’s standpoint that this is a business. (Vogel) was absolutely great with me & up front with me with my role & my expectation. He stayed positive & stayed on us but sometimes coaches get dealt a tough hand.”— John Denton (@JohnDenton555) April 12, 2018
Orlando should be (should!) an attractive job. Great building, good facilities in that same building, NBAGL franchise right down the road and every recruiting advantage possible to get players, minus recent success of course. Hopefully they can nail the next head coach hire.— Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) April 12, 2018
Supposed to be a great defensive coach too and they were horrible on defense.— Anthony Saucier (@asauce15) April 12, 2018
Jonathan Isaac discussing Frank Vogel: “I think Frank did well in terms of his positivity and his relentlessness. There was a lot of times where he saw us give up, he saw us not play to the best of our ability. And he wasn’t having it.”— Josh Robbins (@JoshuaBRobbins) April 12, 2018
