Former San Antonio Spurs assistant and NBA point guard, Jacque Vaughn, is now the new head coach for the Orlando Magic. The Orlando Magic franchise has been in disarray after firing former coach Stan Van Gundy and GM Otis Smith, but management is appearing to make a brand new start with first time head coach Jacque Vaughn.
Vaughn is only 37 years old, but his high basketball IQ makes him a perfect fit to be a head coach. He was never gifted as a player, but his smarts are what kept him in the league for so long. At the same time, this seems to be a step backwards for a franchise that is trying to retain the rights to Dwight Howard. The signing of Vaughn might be a clear indication that the Magic are willing to make their own decisions without being held hostage by their current Dwightmare.
