    Orlando Magic hire new HC

    Orlando Magic have hired former Kansas star Jacque Vaughn as head coach - NBA News | FOX Sports on MSN

    Ex-Jayhawk Jacque Vaughn hired as the new head coach for the Magic. Seems a little young at 37 to be a HC in NBA, plus he's got the KU history going against him.

    How do you think the Magic will perform under his tutelage? Thoughts?

    Re: Orlando Magic hire new HC

    Seems like a weird hire to me but that franchise seems to be circling the drain at the moment so it's not a huge surprise. First they hire a 30 year old GM and now this.

    I will say I was a huge Jacque Vaughn fan when he was at KU. I loved the way he played the point. Excellent leader. It's not a real attractive job at the moment so I guess their options were limited.

    Re: Orlando Magic hire new HC

    very good college player. not sure about his coaching history. one of my favorite quotes from Dedric Willoughby after Vaughn fouled him near the end of the final Big 8 tourney. someone asked Dedric if he would have fouled if he was in Vaughn's position. Dedric's reply, "I wouldn't have been in his position" Ha!

    I think Jeff Hornecek interviewed for that job. If so, it's too bad he didn't get it. I think he'd be a great coach.
