Many reports have surfaced that Stan Van Gundy was the leading candidate for the head coaching job for the Atlanta Hawks, but after this morning interview with ESPN Radio David Baumann, we can cross him off the list.
The Former Orlando Magic Head Coach told SportsTalk1080 that he will not return to the sideline for the 2013-2014 season. While many anticipated his return, Van Gundy will take this time off to spend with his family.
A contributor to NBC Sports Radio, Van Gundy coached the Magic from 2007-12 and earlier the Miami Heat from 2003-05. Montverde Academy topped the ESPN and USA Today final rankings last month after winning the National High School Invitational. Stan Van Gundy helped rebuild the Orlando Magic franchise alongside All-Star Center Dwight Howard and role players like Hedo Turkoglu, JJ Reddick and long time Magic Vet Jameer Nelson.
