SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz announced Tuesday morning that former University of Utah basketball standout Johnnie Bryant will assume the position of player development assistant. Bryant will work under Jazz assistant coach/player development Brad Jones to create and implement individual skill development plans for all Jazz players.
"The addition of Johnnie will help to further bolster our player development program," said Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin. "We've been impressed with Johnnie's offseason training of some of our players in the past, and we are pleased to officially make him a member of the Jazz family."
Bryant has been operating Bryant Sports Academy for the past three years, a skill development program through which he has worked with more than 125 athletes of various age groups to advance each player's skill set through personalized workout sessions.
A native of Oakland, Calif., Bryant played three seasons for the Utes and finished his career as the school's all-time leader in 3-point percentage (.455) and 20th on the Utes' all-time scoring list.
