The Atlanta Hawks have already had a busy week, but things don’t appear to be slowing down just yet. Thursday morning, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported the organization is “swiftly” looking to hire former Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder as their next head coach after Snyder was one of a few names reported as candidates following the dismissal of Nate McMillan.

Snyder was a successful coach with the Jazz for several years before stepping away following a tumultuous ending to the roster constructed around Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert. Charania reports there is serious mutual interest between the two parties and that a virtual meeting was held on Wednesday.

Charania states the Hawks believe in Snyder’s “ability to enhance their culture on and off the floor.” Snyder was an assistant coach for the team under Mike Budenholzer before going 372-264 as Utah’s coach from 2014-2022. The two sides will reportedly meet in person soon, which could lead to a deal coming together quicker than expected.

Stay tuned.

Update: Per Shams Charania, the Hawks have offered their head coaching position to Quin Snyder and the two sides are working towards a deal that could be in the range of $8 million per season.

Charania also reports Snyder has had interest in returning to the Hawks as head coach. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has also reported that the organization is close to deal with the former Jazz coach, who would have been one of the most, if not the most coveted coaches on the market this summer if he were available.
