The Orlando Magic hired Jacque Vaughn, 37, as its head coach Saturday, continuing the youth movement of the basketball operations department after the hiring of 30-year-old General Manager Rob Hennigan last month.
Vaughn becomes the 10th coach in team history and replaces Stan Van Gundy, who was fired despite compiling a 259-135 regular-season record, franchise-best .657 winning percentage and a 31-28 playoff record.
"As we navigated through our coaching search, we quickly saw that Jacque's spirit and leadership strengths made him the clear choice," Hennigan said in a statement. "We are confident that his diligence, attention to detail and communication style will help establish the bedrock of our culture moving forward. His commitment and passion to building a sustainable program will help steer our organization for years to come."
Vaughn, the former Pasadena Muir High and Kansas Jayhawks standout, has never been an NBA head coach. But he has spent the past two seasons as an assistant at San Antonio, where he also won a championship as a player in 2007.
Langer leads Senior British Open
Bernard Langer shot a four-under 66 for a one-stroke lead over Fred Couples heading into the final round of the Senior British Open at Turnberry, Scotland.
Couples had seven birdies in a round of 64, while Peter Fowler finished with a 65 to trail the leader by two shots.
"I'm just happy to be in the hunt with 18 holes to play," said Langer, who won this title two years ago at Carnoustie and is at seven-under 203. "There's a lot of guys in with a chance, so I know I'll have to shoot one of the lower scores to win."
Americans John Cook (66) and overnight leader Gary Hallberg (73) joined England's Barry Lane (66) four shots back.
Robert Garrigus broke the 54-hole scoring record at the Canadian Open that was set more than a half-century ago by Arnold Palmer.
On rain-softened greens that took the bite out of Hamilton Golf & Country Club in Ancaster, Garrigus used his power and some timely putts for a six-under 64 that gave him a one-shot lead over William McGirt, who lost ground with a 66.
Garrigus was at 16-under 194, one shot better than Palmer in 1955 at Weston Golf & Country Club, and matched two years ago by Dean Wilson at St. George's Golf & Country Club.
American Stacy Lewis made a birdie on the last hole to share the lead with South Korea's Inbee Park after the third round of the Evian Masters at Paris.
Lewis, who is chasing her third LPGA Tour title of the year, had a one-over 73 to finish the day at 11 under. The overnight leader had two bogeys and a double bogey on the back nine before a birdie on the 18th.
Park, who was three shots behind Lewis in third place overnight, had four birdies and two bogeys for a 70. Karrie Webb (67), Natalie Gulbis (68) and 17-year-old amateur Hyo Joo Kim (69) of South Korea were one shot behind the leaders.
Austria's Bernd Wiesberger had a seven-under 65 to win the Lyoness Open by three strokes for his second European Tour title. Wiesberger, who was four strokes off the lead going into the final round at Atzenbrugg, Austria, finished at nine-under 269. Shane Lowry (66) of Ireland and Thomas Levet (68) of France tied for second.
