The Orlando Magic's coaching staff will look quite different when the 2015/16 season begins, but at least two player-development coaches from the staffs of Jacque Vaughn and James Borrego will remain, reports Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel.

Laron Profit and Jay Hernandez will retain their roles as assistant coaches for player development, according to Robbins, who says the team is "pleased" with their performance.

Profit joined the Magic prior to the 2012/13 season, Vaughn's first at the Magic's helm. He played four seasons in the NBA. His professional playing career included stops in five other countries as well.

Hernandez only signed with Orlando before the 2014/15 season. He played collegiately at New Hampshire and at Hofstra, and professionally in Puerto Rico. As Robbins notes, Hernandez began working with Magic forward Tobias Harris even before signing with the club.

Both men will serve under Scott Skiles, the team's new head coach. Adrian Griffin will reportedly serve as Skiles' lead assistant coach.

Borrego, who served as the Magic's head coach for the final 30 games of the 2014/15 campaign, had an invitation to return to Orlando as part of Skiles' staff, but took a position with the San Antonio Spurs instead.
