First-time head coach Jacque Vaughn now has a coaching staff around him.

Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn has named his assistant coaches for the 2012/13 season, reports John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com. James Borrego, Brett Gunning, and Wes Unseld Jr. will join Vaughn as assistant coaches, while the club has hired Laron Profit and Luke Stuckey as assistant coaches in charge of player development. In addition, the team has hired longtime assistant Gordon Chiesa as a special consultant to Vaughn, a first-time head coach.

Borrego worked for the New Orleans Hornets as an assistant coach for two seasons, and spent the prior seven seasons with the San Antonio Spurs, the same organization away from which Orlando hired Vaughn. Coincidentally, Borrego worked with new Magic center Gustavo Ayón during Ayón's rookie season.

Gunning joins Orlando via the Houston Rockets, for whom he's worked for four seasons. As Denton notes, during his days at Villanova, Gunning earned a reputation as one of the country's finest assistant coaches.

Prior to joining Mark Jackson's staff with the Golden State Warriors for one season, Unseld spent 13 years in the Washington Wizards' organization. He is the son of Hall-of-Fame forward Wes Unseld.

Stuckey, from California's San Dieguito Academy, and Profit, a former NBA player, are set to serve as player-development coaches.

Chiesa and Vaughn have a long relationship dating to their days with the Utah Jazz, with whom Vaughn began his NBA playing career as Chiesa served as an assistant on Jerry Sloan's coaching staff. Chiesa left the NBA in 2006, but served as a consultant for the NBA D-League in the 2011/12 season.
