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.
