Former Utah coach Jim Boylen to join Los Angeles Lakers staff
Less than three months after he was fired as head men's basketball coach at the University of Utah, Jim Boylen has secured a new job.
ESPN.com's Ric Bucher is reporting that the Lakers are set to hire Boylen as an assistant coach under new head coach Mike Brown, who replaced the legendary Phil Jackson at the end of the Lakers' 2010-11 season.
Joining Boylen will be 76ers development coach Quin Snyder, who will take that same position with the Lakers. Another potential coaching candidate, Toronto assistant coach Scott Roth, will stay with the Raptors.
Boylen posted a record of 69-60 as the head coach at Utah, leading the Utes to one Mountain West Conference title and one NCAA Tournament appearance.
