Stanley A. "Stan" Van Gundy (born August 26, 1959) is the head coach of the National Basketball Association's Orlando Magic. From 2003 to 2005, he was the head coach of the Miami Heat but resigned in 2005 mid-season, turning the job over to Pat Riley. He is the brother of former New York Knicks and Houston Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy.

Van Gundy began his coaching career as an assistant coach at the University of Vermont, 1981-83, and was head coach at Castleton State College (VT) for three seasons. After serving as an assistant coach at Canisius College in 1987 and Fordham University in 1988, Van Gundy was named head coach at UMass Lowell and spent four seasons there, where he compiled a record of 54-60 and coached Leo Parent, whom Van Gundy called "the best Division 2 player in the nation."

Van Gundy then became an assistant at the University of Wisconsin under Stu Jackson (later NBA Senior Vice President of Basketball Operations), and then became head coach at UW.
