ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Three days after the Orlando Magic announced Frank Vogel as the franchise's new coach, the team formally introduced him on Monday.
Vogel, 42, spent the last five-plus seasons with the Indiana Pacers. He replaces Scott Skiles, who abruptly resigned on May 12 after just one season.
During his tenure with the Pacers, Vogel guided them to a 250-181 record and five postseason appearances. The Pacers won two Central Division titles and made two trips to the Eastern Conference finals under Vogel. Pacers director of basketball operations announced earlier this offseason that Vogel's contract would not be renewed after a first-round playoff exit in which the team took Toronto to Game 7 before being ousted.
Vogel inherits a talented young team that is looking to get back into the postseason.
