Former Magic coach Jacque Vaughn is now a scout for the San Antonio Spurs, and I saw him working Wednesday night during the Magic’s embarrassing loss to the Philadelphia 76ers at the Amway Center. After the game, I had this sudden urge to find him, walk up to him, extend my hand and say, “I’m sorry. … It wasn’t your fault, after all.” Since I didn’t do it then, I’ll do it now: Jacque, I’m sorry many of us in the media and even more Magic fans blamed you for all of the losing during your three years as coach. As we’re seeing now, it really wasn’t your fault. You were saddled with a young team, no star, a flawed roster and an organizational edict to lose as many games as possible.
The San Antonio Spurs today announced that Jacque Vaughn has been added to the front office. The former Spurs player and assistant coach will return to San Antonio as a pro scout. Vaughn spent the last three seasons as head coach of the Orlando Magic (2012-15) and was the second-youngest head coach in the league when he was hired in 2012. Prior to leading Orlando, he spent two seasons (2010-12) as an assistant coach under Gregg Popovich for the Silver and Black.
“Overall, I love the city,” Frye said. “I love this opportunity to play with these guys. After the [coaching] change, I think it’s really for me, in my personal opinion, been a breath of fresh air with J.B. I’m not saying that it wasn’t awesome before. But I’m just saying the way his philosophy is a little different, it’s a little bit more my style. For me, I’ve just tried to do the best I can every day, and it’s been a learning process. I kind of know I’m not the fan favorite right now. But I think that, for me, I’m just trying to do everything I can to help the team both on and off the court and help us get wins.”
