After Quin Snyder filed his resignation, the Utah Jazz is now eyeing a deserving replacement to take the keys of their head coaching helm.
Shams Charania of The Athletic reported on Sunday that Former Portland Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts, Jazz assistant Alex Jensen, Boston Celtics assistant Will Hardy, New York Knicks assistant Johnnie Bryant and Toronto Raptors assistant Adrian Griffin are in as initial candidates for the team’s coaching search.
Charania further added that Utah will also consider assistant Charles Lee of the Milwaukee Bucks and Phoenix Suns assistant Kevin Young.
Under Snyder’s leadership, the Jazz made it to the playoffs for sixth-straight years from 2017. Despite this achievement, he wasn’t able to guide them in a Conference Finals appearance in those given seasons.
Compiling a 49-33 regular season record, Utah took a first-round exit this postseason against Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. Behind the front office leadership of Danny Ainge, they are expected to deliver a major roster retooling this offseason in building around Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert.
