Van Gundy Fired

After losing to the Indiana Pacers in 5 games, the Orlando Magic decided it was time to clean house. The result was firing Head Coach Stan Van Gundy and General Manager Otis Smith. Van Gundy in five seasons in Orlando had a 259-135 record and was 31-28  in the playoffs. He won 3 Southeast Division titles and the 2009 Eastern Conference Championship. The Magic have had the fourth best winning percentage in the NBA under Van Gundy’s watch.

Van Gundy was hired in Orlando in 2007.

He led the Magic to a 2009 Eastern Conference Championship.

His tumultuous relationship with Dwight Howard didn’t help his cause this season.
