The Orlando Magic have fired head coach Jacque Vaughn. Many of us saw the writing in the sand as the Orlando Magic continued to struggle even after some hopefully first round picks (Victor Oladipo and Aaron Gordon) along with some off season signing (Ben Gordon and Channing Frye) and trade pick ups (Evan Fournier).
The firing of Jacque Vaughn comes just a week away from the 2015 NBA All-Star weekend. This benchmark/celebration is typically where GM’s and Owners come together to prepare for the second half of the season and make necessary changes.
The Orlando Magic front office appears to have gotten started sooner with the firing of Jacque Vaughn and most likely will take this break to find a replacement head coach.
The front office has their work cut out as Jacque Vaughn appeared to do his best in his 2 seasons with the Orlando Magic and finished with a 43-121 record.
The Magic have a current record of 15-37 and have a tough schedule ahead with games against the Hawks, Bulls and Wizards.
Any coach who takes over at this point will be in a lose/lose situation as there is almost no way to turn around this season and the morale in the locker room must be down with the firing and losing season.
Who will be the next Orlando Magic Coach? The team at No Flopping believes Mark Jackson will be!
