Snyder coached the Jazz a winning record from 2014-2022 after serving as an assistant for the Hawks under former head coach Mike Budenholzer. He will now return to the sidelines in Atlanta and look to figure out things on the fly as the Hawks try to fight their way back into the postseason.
The Hawks sit as the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference as the standings sit early Sunday evening, with some time left to make a run at a top-6 spot.
The Hawks confirmed the move on Sunday evening, and will announced Snyder as head coach to the media on Monday afternoon.
