I like the perfect world scenario of Karl coaching, but in reality, I think he'd
be more of a hindrance than helpful on the team. I can see him trying to be
tough just to be tough and making everyone mad. Last night during the game he
said over and over "put his number on speed dial," and they aren't
jumping to the opportunity. I think they have their reasons why. It would be
great to get his toughness in there and help our bigs though, maybe do a part
time thing like they were doing with Jeff?I'm glad that it's all but
official with Jeff, he'll be a great addition. I'd like to see him be the
primary assistant and keep Layden on secondary with stats. Good move for the
Jazz if this happens!
Horney is a class act. He is the nicest and most genuine (former) professional
athlete I've ever met. He'd be a good addition.The Milkman is in a better
position to be a head coach. He's been a full-time assistant for 7 years and his
16 years in the league as a journeyman backup probably prepared him more for
coaching than being a star player would have.
"I mean I've been dissapointed with Al Jefferson's poor conditioning,
D-Will's whining, Mile's laziness to shoot that 3, and AK's fluff. There's only
1 man on the Jazz who I respect right now and that is Milsap." Anonigma.I could not agree with you more! I'll cheer all day every day for
Millsap but the rest I don't really care about. Bunch of lazy whiners who think
the world revolves around them. Malone told it like it is. Todays players are
different and the NBA is not what it used to be.
I agree bring in karl and jeff.
I am pretty confident most fans know next to nothing at all about coaching and
only a little more about professional basketball. Jeff was very popular and
worked hard but is he a good coach? I don't know and I don't think any of these
posters do either.He might be a good person but that doesn't make
him a good coach. I believe fans everywhere like to turn athletes and coaches
into these idealized people. The image would be shattered in a day or two of
real life exposure I suspect.
Karl said on ESPN he wants to start coaching and would like to coach in SLC.
Can you imagine Karl coaching Fes?
Ty, you keep the coaching decisions, that will be best for the jazz.And keep your son local, either BYU or Utah.
You gotta have Malone be an assistant or something.He said he'll do
it...He's a no non-sense guy and would really work the Jazz hard.I
mean I've been dissapointed with Al Jefferson's poor conditioning, D-Will's
whining, Mile's laziness to shoot that 3, and AK's fluff.There's
only 1 man on the Jazz who I respect right now and that is Milsap.It's time you get in a real punk like Malone and whip these guys into NBA
Bring in Horny and Karl Malone! No brainer!!!!
Ty is the man... he'll be a great coach. and the possible addition of Jeff to
the staff gives me confidence that the Jazz will be moving in the right
I've been thinking all year that I'd almost rather see Harpring coach than
broadcast. That being said--it's Corbin's team now & I'm sure he'll make
some intelligent decisions about his coaching staff. Matt has said he's not
ready to take on the challenges of coaching yet. But he reminds me more of a
Jerry Sloan type player & person than anybody else I can think of. Malone
would already be back in the organization if he was ever going to be; same with
Stockton. I'd like to see the Jazz reach outside the realm of Jazz basketball
& bring in at least one more person to add to the coaching staff. Did
anyone else wonder what happened a few weeks ago behind the scenes that started
this whole downward spiral? I'm curious about that but I'm more excited for
them to just step up & move on.
I didn't realize Jeff Hornacek had two coaches fired in mid season. He always
seemed like such a nice guy. Certainly not the type of player that would go
around firing coaches. He didn't have anything to do with having Jerry Sloan
fired did he?
Hornacek is a coach's son, grew up around the game, wants to be an assistant,
and maybe a coach, someday. Would you rather have someone who's just another
recycled coach from a losing team? There's plenty of those guys out there, and
none would help the Jazz very much, if at all.Harpring would be nice
to have in a consultant role, use him during training camps and off-times to
teach the young bigs how to play off the ball. And Corbin will
surprise the doubters, he hasn't been getting interviews to coach other teams
for nothing, over the past several years.
Hello what planet are these fans from?Get Ostertag back becuase he
was a great .....big person?Hornacek was a good fit for the Jazz
system as a player but I would not get Karl back to be the GM.Having
watched the Jazz scoring percentage diminish and confidence as shooter plummet
while he has been shooting coach you have to ask yourself why would anybody want
him in their b-ball organization?I think Corbin is reaching out to
him to maintain some semblance of order and balance during the transition.
Corbin is supposed to have a good basketball mind, I hope he does not take
Hornacek on just because he is a familiar face.Hornacek had skills
shooting the ball, any others have yet to surface.
I've always respected Jeff Hornacek. Tough, gritty player. A true "Jerry
Sloan" type.Plus, I always admired the fact that he'd send a
hidden message to his wife and kids that he loved them, during the game.
Remember how he always used to brush his hand on the side of his face when he
was at the free-throw line? That was his signal to his wife and kids. I always
thought that showed wisdom about perspective and what REALLY mattered.Would love to see Hornacek hired as a Jazz assistant.
Greg, Kevin and Randy:MAKE THIS HAPPEN! Hornacek had a long and
productive career in the NBA because of his basketball IQ, not because he was a
great (or even good) athlete. Not only will Hornacek bring a wealth of
experience and knowledge to the Jazz coaching staff, he will also bring a small
remnant of the glory years of Jazz basketball that finally came to an end
PLEASE sign Hornacek to the coaching staff as a full-time assistant! Then get
Harpring on staff as well to teach these guys some toughness.
There might still be a light at the end of the tunnel-Jeff, Jeff, Jeff!!!
I heard David Locke interview Deron Williams yesterday. He asked Deron point
blank about the pathtetic lies ESPN reporters produced: 1. Did you say Sloan
goes or you won't re-sign in 2012? Deron said no. He admitted the
conflict and the incident the other night but he said those are normal with any
coach player interaction. He said he has seen worse interactions with Sloan and
other players.All that being said I think it was the proverbial
straw and the cumulative effect.Sloan probably got sick of Derons
insubordination on a regular basis and even more than that I think Sloan HATES
losing. This team has too many players that clearly are more
accepting of losing than doing the work to start winning.The results
speak for themselves. You are your record.Sloan realized these
insubordinate softies are not going to win a championship this year so likely
said what am I working this hard for?Sloan gave Deron all kinds of
leash with respect to play calling but evidently that was not enough. Deron
even had to ignore Sloan on the few plays he did call anymore.Ty has
his work cut out for him.
That would be a GREAT combination. I hope they can make it happen. Have always
admired Hornacek. Good luck!
I was hoping for Horny, John, and Karl as the new coaching staff.
It of course is sad to see Sloan leave, well, I really don't see the games,now
that I am out of Utah. But it would be awesome to have Horney on the staff,
maybe I would find the games once in a while. He is a good leader, because he
would be willing to assist, one of the most respectable players out there.
Make this happen Corbin!! Hornacek would be an awesome addition to the staff.
Does anybody think Matt Harpring would make a good coach? Or has his time with
Boler turned him into too much of a clown?
PLEASE! I won't cancel my NBA Package if Jeff and Ty are coaching.
I was/am a fan of Hornacek from back in the time I used to be a Sports
Fan,(before obtaining a life), he is an outstanding person, and I have always
liked him.I wish them all well, why not.
Tyrone and Jeff...I like it!!! new blood under the same system!!! it looks
good!!! GO JAZZ
Ty??? I love the guy but I really thought that once Jsloan left, we'd see Horny
replace him. Step up Horny, we need you to keep this franchise together..
Awesome! Horny is the man!
I am NOT a Jazz fan (due to Malone's whining). However, if Hornacek becomes a
coach and eventually the head coach, I will become one.
