Jazz hire Quin Snyder as head coach

 

The Utah Jazz announced Friday they have hired Atlanta Hawks assistant coach Quin Snyder to replace Tyrone Corbin, who was let go earlier this year after three-plus seasons in Salt Lake City. Snyder most recently completed his first season as an assistant with Atlanta. He has also been an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers, the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Clippers. He was the head coach at Missouri for seven seasons, from 1999 to 2006, leading the Tigers to four NCAA tournaments. That included an Elite Eight appearance in 2002. “He has an impressive basketball pedigree, including more than a decade of head coaching experience, that positions him well to succeed in the Jazz organization,” Jazz CEO Greg Miller said in a statement.
