ORLANDO, Fla. (FNN SPORTS) – Ending the season with a win against the Washington Wizards did not save Orlando Magic head coach Frank Vogel’s job.
Orlando Magic President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman announced the firing of head coach Frank Vogel in a press release Thursday morning.
Coach Vogel started the NBA 2017-18 season strong as the team to beat, but was hit with an injury plagued starting roaster. Vogel was forced to juggle the Magic’s starting lineups almost nightly.
Simply put, injuries to key positions and players impeded the Orlando Magic winning season, which ended with 25W-57L, the fifth-worst record in the NBA.
