ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – The Orlando Magic have fired coach Stan Van Gundy after a rocky season.

The Magic also have mutually agreed to part ways with general manager Otis Smith.

The moves came Monday after the team’s second straight first-round playoff exit. Orlando went 37-29 in the regular season, but stumbled in the Eastern Conference playoffs following a rash of late-season injuries that included back surgery for All-Star Dwight Howard.

Orlando went 5-12 without Howard, including a 4-1 playoff loss to Indiana.

Van Gundy coached the Magic for five seasons. He finished with a 259-135 record, going 31-28 in the playoffs.
