Six Assistants Join Magic’s Coaching Staff
The staff around new Orlando Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn started taking shape on Thursday when three assistants, two player development coaches and a special consultant were officially named by the team.
James Borrego, Wes Unseld Jr. and Brett Gunning were hired as assistant coaches under Vaughn, who was named head coach by the Magic on July 28. Luke Stuckey and former Magic draft pick Laron Profit have been named assistant coaches/player development coaches, while veteran NBA assistant coach Gordon Chiesa was tabbed as a special consultant to the head coach.
“Each coach brings a unique skill set to the staff,’’ Vaughn said. “Collectively, this staff possesses a diverse basketball background. We are truly fortunate that these men have decided to join our Magic family.
