INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Indiana Pacers president Larry Bird says he’s interested in contacting Mike Brown and Rick Adelman about filling the head coaching spot.

Brown, a former Pacers assistant, led the Cleveland Cavaliers to the 2007 NBA Finals and was NBA coach of the year in 2009.

Adelman was interviewed the last time the Pacers had an opening.

Adelman went 193-135 in four seasons with the Houston Rockets before leaving the team last month. He ranks eighth in NBA history in wins with a career record of 945-616.

Bird says interim coach Frank Vogel, who took over at midseason, is the front-runner. The 37-year-old took over when the Pacers fired Jim O’Brien, finished the regular season with a 20-18 record and led the team to the playoffs.
