Nate Bjorkgren fired as Indiana Pacers coach after one season

The Indiana Pacers have fired head coach Nate Bjorkgren after just one season in the role on Wednesday due to failure to meet the team’s standards.

“The 2020-21 season was not what any of us hoped or anticipated it would be, and our results on the court certainly did not meet the standards for what our organization and our fans have come to expect,” wrote Kevin Pritchard, the Pacers’ president of basketball operations, in a statement.

Bjorkgren finished his first season with the Pacers with a 34-38 record and failed to make the playoffs.
