Orlando Magic: 6 Challenges for Jacque Vaughn, Other Coach Replacement

Jacque Vaughn wasn't much of a player, but does that mean he might not be a good coach?

The Magic are a team in disarray, make no mistake.

Changes needed to occur, and they did. Out went general manager Otis Smith, a former Magic inaugural team shooting guard. Out went the coach with the best winning percentage in all-time Magic history, Stan Van Gundy, who we'll talk about later. Out went Ryan Anderson.  

And Dwight Howard is on his way out, too.

The new coach, whether it be Jacque Vaughn, as Hoopsworld's Alex Kennedy had said via his Twitter account it would be just about a week ago before this latest news had officially broken, or any other candidate, that person is going to face immense challenges and will be criticized from day one.  

It is going to take a special man to coach a rebuilding Magic team, though the fan base is more patient than, well, let's say those fans in the Big Apple making all the noise on NBA Draft nights.

Either way, I don't envy Vaughn, should it be he or anyone else, at all.  We're going to look at the six biggest and most insurmountable tasks for the new Magic head coach in this slideshow.
