SALT LAKE CITY — Alvin Gentry will get another chance to impress the Utah Jazz.

It's already been reported that the Clippers assistant coach remains on the organization's short list along with front-runners Quin Snyder, Adrian Griffin, Jim Boylen and possibly others, but he's also getting a second interview for the Jazz's head coach position, according to ESPN.

Gentry's interview with Jazz brass will reportedly take place Tuesday. The longtime NBA coach, who has a 335-370 record in four different stints, has also interviewed for openings with the Lakers and Cavaliers, ESPN.com senior reporter Ramona Shelbourne reported Monday.

Gentry spent the past season as Doc Rivers' associate head coach after being fired by the Phoenix Suns midway through the 2012-13 season.

The 59-year-old has guided two teams to the playoffs in 12 seasons as a head coach or interim coach.
