The Orlando Magic have named Frank Vogel head coach, General Manager Rob Hennigan announced today. Vogel becomes the 13th head coach in franchise history.
During his five-plus seasons as a head coach with Indiana from 2011-16, Vogel, 42, guided the Pacers to the NBA Playoffs five times, two Central Division championships and two trips to the Eastern Conference Finals. He has an overall NBA regular season head coaching record of 250-181 (.580). His 250 wins are the most for a Pacers head coach in the team’s NBA history.
“While we were conducting our search, it became very evident that Frank (Vogel) is a terrific fit for our organization,” said Hennigan. “He is a strong, hard-working and experienced leader, who will continue to instill smart, physical, unselfish and defensive-minded basketball in our group. We welcome him into the Magic family, as we move forward in a positive direction.”
