As of today, Brian Hill is no longer the head coach of the Orlando Magic.
Brian Hill will not return as head coach of the Orlando Magic the Orlando Sentinel learned Wednesday afternoon. The club is soon expected to announce that he will be offered a position with the organization.
The Magic had said in early March when the team was struggling that they still had confidence in Hill. General Manager Otis Smith told the Sentinel before the Magic faced the Houston Rockets on March 11 that he expected Hill to "fulfill his contractual obligations" through 2009.
Hill had even said he was not worried about "my job security."
But by the end of the season, Hill was receiving lukewarm endorsements from President Bob Vander Weide and Otis Smith.
