Stan Van Gundy is out as Magic head coach, Otis Smith most likely next

We knew this was going to happen.  Hoopsworld breaks it down for us:

In a much-anticipated move, the Orlando Magic today fired head coach Stan Van Gundy. The move follows a very public falling out between Van Gundy and All-Star center Dwight Howard, and may be aimed at keeping Howard with the team long-term. Sources close to the situation tell HOOPSWORLD that the team is considering a clean sweep, with GM Otis Smith likely next to be fired.
Yup, SVG will land on his feet, as for the Magic, not sure they can replace a consistent 50 win coach who took them to the Finals once.
