Quin Snyder is expected to become the next coach of the Utah Jazz, according to multiple reports Friday.
Snyder, an assistant with the Atlanta Hawks, is set to sign a three-year contarct with a team option for a fourth year. Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsay worked with Snyder while both were with the San Antonio Spurs’ organization.
Snyder has not been a head coach in the NBA but has worked as an assistant with the Philadelphia 76ers and the Los Angeles Lakers before going to the Hawks last season.
After Snyder left Missouri in the shadow of an NCAA investigation, he served as coach of the Spurs’ NBA Development League team. Snyder gained additional experience as an assistant for CSKA Moscow, a European power coached by legendary Ettore Messina.
Snyder, who replaces Tyrone Corbin, is expected to hire Messina as an assistant with the Jazz.
Among the finalists for the Utah job were Los Angeles Clippers lead assistant Alvin Gentry and Chicago Bulls assistant coach Adrian Griffin, according to ESPN.
The Jazz finished the 2013-14 season with a 25-57 record. Corbin was 112-146 in four years as coach.
