Orlando Magic assistant coach Jay Hernandez checked in with Brandon ‘Scoop B’ Robinson. Press Play below to see him in training action.
Last month, the Orlando Magic named Jay Hernandez assistant coach of player development. It couldn’t have been more of a perfect fit.
Hernandez has years of basketball history.
Playing one season at the University of New Hampshire, he transferred to Hofstra University and played under current Villanova head coach Jay Wright. During his three seasons at Hofstra University from 1998-2001, along with Speedy Claxton, Hernandez helped guide Hofstra to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances in 2000 and 2001.
After playing professionally in Puerto Rico for three years, Hernandez founded a local basketball training program called Pro Hoops, Inc. a basketball training program.
Pro Hoops improves basketball performance of hoopers from grade school all the way to the adult age. Hernandez left Pro Hoops to dive into his coaching role with the Orlando Magic full-time. But his impact was felt.
Hernandez also tried his hand at acting too. He was the stunt double for rapper, Common in the film “Just Wright.”
