If Twitter is any indication, fans have mixed reactions as the Utah Jazz decided not to extend head coach Tyrone Corbin's contract on Monday.

Some seem to be almost gleeful about Utah's decision to let Corbin go. Others aren't so sure that Corbin was the primary person at fault. These fans point to the Jazz let Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap go before the beginning of this season.

Everyone can agree that Utah's 25-57 season was a dismal one, and that this team needed to make some changes to get back into playoff contention. However, it doesn't seem like fans have yet come to a consensus that letting Corbin go was the right decision.

We'll see how public opinion changes as Utah's search for a new head coach begins.
