Orlando Magic coaching search: Jacque Vaughn may be favorite

The Orlando Magic’s search for a new head coach is entering its final phase.

San Antonio Spurs assistant coach Jacque Vaughn, widely presumed to be front-runner for the job, met with Magic CEO Alex Martins on Friday in Las Vegas for a second-round interview.

“We’re not going to comment on the process and where it stands,” Martins told the Orlando Sentinel on Saturday…

Magic general manager Rob Hennigan conducted first-round interviews with six candidates and whittled the field down to three: Philadelphia 76ers associate head coach Michael Curry, Phoenix Suns player development coach Lindsey Hunter and Vaughn.
