The Orlando Magic have reportedly found a new head coach in Frank Vogel. 

According to Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel, the Magic agreed to terms with the former Pacer's coach Thursday afternoon. 
Vogel was the leading candidate for the Magic job and took the Indiana Pacers to the playoffs all but one season.

A defensive-minded coach, Vogel will offer some much needed assistance in that department. He also has a knack for developing young players and was a driving force in helping Paul George grow into an all-star level player. 

Vogel, who some say looks just like Joe Gatto from "Impractical Jokers," coached the Pacers for six years and amassed a .580 record.
