Also hearing Hawks assistant Quin Snyder continues to be considered a solid candidate for the Jazz job.— Jody Genessy (@DJJazzyJody) May 14, 2014
While much of the coaching talk has centered around Steve Kerr, Stan Van Gundy and the vacancies by the New York Knicks and Golden State Warriors there are still other openings out there. Utah is flying a bit under the radar and seemingly waiting for the dust to clear with a lot of the big names.
Per Genessy, the Jazz are among the teams that have shown interest in former Grizzlies coach Lionel Hollins but then casts doubt that Utah will hire a coach with prior head coaching experience.
From what I've heard, I'd personally be surprised if the Jazz hire a former NBA head coach. Still could happen, of course.— Jody Genessy (@DJJazzyJody) May 14, 2014
Snyder just finished up his first season in Atlanta as part of Mike Budenholzer's staff. He drew rave reviews from many Hawks players during exit interviews for his part in their improvement this season.
