As those following Pistons 101 on Twitter already know, the Detroit Pistons have decided not bring Lawrence Frank back as their head coach next season. Yesterday Yahoo! Sports reported that Frank had told team owner Tom Gores that if the organization wasn't planning on picking up the fourth-year team option on his contract, then the team should fire him before his third year begins. Whether or not Gores thought on that ultimatum, the firing makes Frank the eighth coach to be fired by the Pistons since Joe Dumars became general manager before the 2000-01 season. Frank served only two years of his guaranteed three-year, four-year team option contract.
