This isn’t a condemnation, just a reminder that Hornacek will have his growing period, same as Corbin. Some have suggested Hornacek become the Jazz’s coach instead of Corbin, or have the Jazz swap Corbin for Sloan. Yet Sloan was fired by Chicago halfway through his third season as a head coach, with a 94-121 record (.438). Corbin is 87-89 (.494) at roughly the same place in his career.
Moral to the story: You never know when a “failure” will end up in the Hall of Fame.
Hornacek has a bright future; one day he’ll be a winning head coach.
The same could be said for Corbin, who has two winning seasons in his three years. The only non-winning year was in 2011 when he took over midstream.
He too could be a fine coach just waiting to break out.
