Amid reports that Frank Vogel may be coaching for his job this postseason, the Indiana Pacers used a strange method to shoot down rumors.

Pacers general manager Kevin Pritchard tweeted the following on Thursday morning: "Larry Bird just told me his sources say Frank Vogel's job is safe."

Pritchard, of course, works under Bird and is Vogel's boss.

The Pacers will take on the Atlanta Hawks in Game 3 of their first round series on Thursday night in Atlanta.
