Lawrence Frank, an assistant coach for the Boston Celtics, has been interviewing for several head coaching vacancies this offseason to no avail, but his last interview may have been the one that lands him a new job.

Frank, who has been an assistant coach with the Celtics for one season, has prior head coaching experience with the New Jersey Nets, taking over the head coaching job following the firing of Byron Scott.

In seven seasons at the helm of the Nets, Frank was 225-241. During his first season with the team, in which he only coached 40 games after Scott's firing, Frank was 25-15 with the Nets and led the team to the second round of the playoffs with six wins.

His best season came in 2005-06, when he guided the Nets to a 49-33 record and five wins in the postseason. Frank also had a successful campaign in 2006-07, leading the team to a 41-41 record and six wins in the playoffs.

In the playoffs, Frank has a lifetime record of 18-20 in 38 postseason appearances.
