Magic Narrow Coaching Search To Four Candidates

The head coaching seat for the Orlando Magic has remained vacant since the team fired Stan Van Gundy on May 21. Several reports indicated that the team would wait until after the NBA Draft to hire a new coach and with the draft already passed, the Magic has reportedly narrowed the coaching search to four candidates.

Joshua Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports that Michael Malone, Brian Shaw, Quin Snyder and Jacque Vaughn are the candidates for the position.

All four candidates acted as assistant coaches during the 2011-12 NBA season and many have strong connections to the Magic. Shaw and Vaughn both played point guard for the team and Malone's father, Brendon Malone, formerly served as an assistant coach for the Magic.

Evan Dunlap of Orlando Pinstriped Post called Malone and Shaw "two of the league's most widely respected assistant coaches."
