Report: Jazz finalizing deal to make Quin Snyder head coach
The Jazz are finalizing an agreement to make former Missouri head coach and Hawks assistant Quin Snyder its head coach, a league source told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports on Friday.
The deal is for three guaranteed years plus a team option, Wojnarowski reports.
The 47-year-old Snyder, a Duke alum and former Blue Devils assistant, was 128-96 (.571) in seven seasons at Missouri (1999-2006), leading the Tigers to four NCAA tournaments, including the 2002 Elite Eight. He resigned after an NCAA investigation revealed a handful of minor violations after a 12-16 season in 2005-06.
The Jazz went 25-57 this season, their worst record since the 1981-82 season, and missed the playoffs in three of the last four seasons under Tyrone Corbin.
Utah is finalizing an agreement to make Atlanta assistant Quin Snyder its head coach, league source tells Yahoo Sports.
