Two NBA teams found their new head coach today as both the Orlando Magic and New York Knicks have found their guys.

The New York Knicks have hired Jeff Hornacek and the Orlando Magic have hired Frank Vogel to be their new head coaches.

The Hornacek news broke late on Wednesday and after Vogel found out he wasn't getting that job, he emerged as the favorite to take over in Orlando.

Vogel had a great run in Indiana with the Pacers but Larry Bird decided it was time for a fresh voice and decided not to renew Vogel's contract earlier this month.

Orlando is a young team that has some athletic guards and the feeling is that they will buy into Vogel's defensive principals of full court presses and relentless attention to detail.

The deal is a 4 year deal worth $22 million dollars according to multiple reports.
