Orlando could look to promote assistant Adrian Griffin
After the surprising resignation of Scott Skiles last week, the Magic launched into what will be a thorough search — including reaching out to former interim head coach James Borrego, who also has interviewed with the Grizzlies. Jeff Hornacek (who impressed the Magic during their 2013 coaching search) and Frank Vogel also are on Orlando’s radar.
But at the Chicago combine last week, league sources indicated that one option that is very much on the table is promoting assistant Adrian Griffin. Orlando just had a turnover on the coaching staff last summer when they hired Skiles, and promoting Griffin would provide an opportunity to have consistency for a young roster of players who are maturing together.
The Magic may look to Adrian Griffin to fill their coaching vacancy.
