09:37 PM ET 04.18 | After just two seasons as head coach, Lawrence Frank will be looking for new employment. The Pistons ended the speculation Thursday, announcing that Frank would not be returning as head coach. The Pistons finished a disappointing season with a 29-53 record and a fourth place finish in the Central Divison. This should not be surprising news as there were rumblings around the league that he would most likely be let go.

He shouldn't have been hired in the first place.

C'mon man. How may good coaches were out there - and how many of those were willing to go to Detroit ? Frank was a solid, hard-working coach, if nothing else.

Hard working doesn't get you anywhere. Good coaching does. He is nothing more than an assistant coach.
