A little more than a month after hiring a new general manager, the Orlando Magic announced the coach taking over for Stan Van Gundy.
Jacque Vaughn, who played for Orlando during the 2002-03 season and was an assistant coach with San Antonio the past two years, will be the new head coach of the Magic, GM Rob Hennigan announced Saturday.
"We are beyond excited to name Jacque Vaughn as our head coach, Hennigan said in a release by the team. As we navigated through our coaching search, we quickly saw that Jacque's spirit and leadership strengths made him the clear choice. We are confident that his diligence, attention to detail and communication style will help establish the bedrock of our culture moving forward. His commitment and passion to building a sustainable program will help steer our organization for years to come."
