The Orlando Magic announced Friday that Scott Skiles, whom they hired as their new head coach in May, has completed his coaching staff.

Joining Skiles on Orlando's sidelines are Mario Elie, Adrian Griffin, Conner Henry, and Monte Mathis. As the Orlando Sentinel's Josh Robbins reported Monday, Skiles has retained player-development coaches Laron Profit and Jay Hernandez.

Elie has served as an assistant coach for nine seasons with five different teams, most recently with the Brooklyn Nets from 2009-2011. As a player, he won three championships in 11 NBA seasons.

Griffin spent the last five season as an assistant coach with the Chicago Bulls. In the two seasons prior to that stop, he served on Skiles' staff with the Milwaukee Bucks. After going undrafted, Griffin carved an NBA role for himself and ultimately logged nine seasons.

Henry coached the Fort Wayne Mad Ants of the NBA D-League for the last two seasons, leading them to two D-League Finals appearances and one championship. He's also served as an assistant coach in the D-League and in the Australian Basketball League.

Mathis comes to Orlando via the Dallas Mavericks, where he has spent the last five seasons as an assistant coach, including the four most recent seasons as defensive coordinator. He's also coached collegiately, most recently as an assistant at Xavier.
