Orlando, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - The Orlando Magic have extended the contracts of head coach Jacque Vaughn and general manager Rob Hennigan through the 2015-16 seasons.

Hennigan was named to his post on June 20, 2012 and Vaughn was hired as head coach just over a month later.

"Rob and Jacque have worked extremely hard in establishing a culture which embodies teamwork, hard work, hunger for success and humility," said Magic CEO Alex Martins in a statement Friday. "With their strategic direction and leadership we feel we are headed in the right direction, which will allow us to achieve our goals of contending in a long term sustainable fashion."

The Magic have undergone a complete transformation under Hennigan and Vaughn, as only point guard Jameer Nelson remains on the roster since the two took charge.

Hennigan made a major move just two months into his tenure, sending center Dwight Howard to the Lakers as part of a four-team, 12-player deal that also included the Nuggets and 76ers.

The Magic have struggled in the standings over the past two seasons after the makeover, posting records of 20-62 and 23-59.

Vaughn, a former Magic player, had served as an assistant with San Antonio for two seasons before landing his first head coaching position. Hennigan had spent four seasons with Oklahoma City's front office, the last two as assistant general manager, before taking over the reins in Orlando.
