The Orlando Magic have fired coach Frank Vogel, the team announced on Thursday.

Vogel was 54-110 in two seasons with the Magic.

Orlando’s new president Jeff Weltman and general manager John Hammond will begin a search immediately for a new head coach.

“We would like to thank Frank for his contributions to the Orlando Magic,” Weltman said in a statement. “We appreciate the sacrifices he made as head coach and certainly wish him and his family well going forward.”

The Magic will move on to their fifth coach since firing Stan Van Gundy after the 2011-12 season. A six-season playoff streak ended after Van Gundy’s departure that season and Orlando hasn’t made the postseason since. This was the longest drought in franchise history.
