Default We have an announcement to make regarding our coaching situation.

As of today, Brian Hill is no longer the head coach of the Orlando Magic.

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sport...home-headlines

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.

Interesting. It didn't seem like he was well liked.

Too bad.


I was hoping he'd stay and keep Orlando down. No need for them to become good anytime soon.

About time. I have no idea why they even brought him back in the first place, well actually I do as far as the marketing part and etc. I would love to see Billy D here but I doubt that happens. Oh well I guess he won't be allowed in the RDV Sportsplex either.

Carlisle would be good for that team. They're not smart enough to run the offense themselves, so it'd be good for them to have Rick calling the play every possession.

Default Magic fire coach Brian Hill

http://www.insidehoops.com/hill-fired-052307.shtml

The Orlando Magic announced Wednesday that Brian Hill will not return as head coach, but will have the option to return to the organization in another capacity.

“Brian’s contributions to the Orlando Magic have been tremendous,” said President Bob Vander Weide. “We appreciate everything Brian did for us as a head coach in taking us to this point, and hope he decides to stay with the organization.”

Added General Manager Otis Smith: “We will miss Brian’s disciplined approach, game preparation and attention to detail, and passion he displayed as our head coach. We look forward to taking the next step toward being a championship-caliber team.”

Now Darko cant blame him for being a bust. But he can include him in his personal reort as a reason if he never does anything worth writing home about. Blame it on a collection of things. Hilarious...eurobum

Not everyone knows he is the Magic coach moron. I assume most should know, but there is a few select people that don't.
