The Orlando Magic have signed Scott Skiles as their new head coach. Skiles brings familiarity to Orlando as a former Magic player during the 90's, the decade Magic fans revere. However, his coaching career has been average, as indicated by his career coaching record hovering at the .500 mark. Magic brass hope this blast from the past can help resurrect Skiles' career as well as the young Magic team.
During his time with both the Bulls and Bucks, Skiles was fired in the midst of his fifth season with each team. Both organizations had playoff runs with Skiles as the head coach, but critics say Skiles style wears on players. This could explain his short stints with each team.What should Magic fans expect from Scott Skiles? Skiles should provide some life into a currently lifeless franchise. The question is whether it will last. (Getty)
