It seems that not only Boston Celtics assistant coach Will Hardy is in the mix for a potential chance to become the next head coach of the Utah Jazz after it was revealed that longtime Jazz head coach Quinn Snyder has decided to to step down from management of that particular Western conference franchise.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski recently reported that Celtics assistant coach Joe Mazzulla is another name being considered for the Jazz head coaching gig and that permission has been granted to speak to Mazzulla about the job. Mazzulla joins Johnnie Bryant of the New York Knicks, Charles Lee of the Milwaukee Bucks, Jazz assistant Alex Jensen and Miami Heat assistant Chris Quinnformer Portland Trail Blazers head coach Terry Stotts and, of course, fellow Celtics Hardy.
“The list will grow with assistants and former head coaches,” wrote Wojnarowski, who tells us that we should expect “a lengthy, wide-open process” from former Boston team president Danny Ainge and the rest of Jazz’s front office.
