SALT LAKE CITY — The Utah Jazz continue to expand their coaching contingency.
West Virginia Wesleyan coach Patrick Beilein will join Jazz coach Quin Snyder's staff to help with player development and video work, it was confirmed to the Deseret News.
The 31-year-old Beilein is the son of Michigan coach John Beilein, whom Snyder recently complimented while talking about former Wolverine Trey Burke.
"Snyder plans to utilize Beilein's strengths as a shooting instructor with a young, developing roster," wrote Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski, who broke the news Friday afternoon.
Beilein played for his dad in college at West Virginia, helping the Mountaineers reach the Elite Eight, before embarking on a two-year international career. Since then, he's had multiple stops, including as director of basketball operations at Bradley, as an assistant coach at Dartmouth and as a graduate assistant at Michigan.
Utah recently added Lamar Skeeter in a similar position on Snyder's expanding staff.
Since being hired as head coach, Snyder has also hired Brad Jones (lead assistant), Antonio Lang and Alex Jensen as his bench coaches. Johnnie Bryant and Mike Wells round out his player-development staff.
