Former Orlando Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn is returning to the San Antonio Spurs, but this time in a player-personnel role to replace the departed Trajan Langdon, according to Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski.
Vaughn won an NBA title as a player with the Spurs in 2007, and he finished his playing career in San Antonio in 2009. He then joined the Spurs as an assistant coach in 2010 before being hired as head coach of the Orlando Magic in 2012.
Vaughn spent two-plus seasons as headmaster of the rebuilding Magic, going a wretched 58-158 in those years. He was fired after a 15-37 start in 2014-15, with James Borrego getting the interim tag.
Funny enough, Borrego is also back in San Antonio. The Spurs hired Borrego as an assistant this summer after Scott Skiles got the Magic head coaching job. Borrego was a Spurs assistant from 2003-10.
