Hmmm.....

I hope he continues to wear suits like that if we get to see him on the sidelines!

Who's going to coach the post players? Why do we need three wings and a non-player on the staff?

A quick search revealed the correct information:

Drafted by Chicago Bulls in second round in 1983.

Played at Minnesota 1989-1990.

Retired in 1991.

Head coach of Minnesota 1992-1994.

Head coach of Vancouver 2000-2001.

Head coach of Memphis 2001-2002 (Grizzlies moved to Memphis from Vancouver in 2001)

Did anyone notice who Celtics had on their bench as assistant coach?

Did anyone notice who the Lakers had?

They were not these generics, the players need real coaches. I was hoping for a high caliber coach we could use. PAt Ewing has said he is ready for a move and he is also looking to be a head coach soon which provides further motivation for him to help our bigs. The Jazz finally have some bigs and now have a wing coach???

Come on Corbin get some coaching talent which the team has lacked since Jerry and Phil left. When the season begins the team needs to play for a ring not for fun.

Who cares about the NBA.
I used to, but this lockout stuff is ridiculous. I'm shifting all my sport attention to the collegiate level - money ruins pro sports.

Tough to coach anyone in a screwed up situation where owners and players can't understand the basic economics of the time. High salaries = high ticket prices + poor performance = no attendance = no revenue = no game. The Fat Lady sings, the lights go out, the doors are locked. No great loss.

Hired to coach in a season, which most likely will not occur.

Wow, I am so impressed that Coach Corbin picked such an outstanding Assistant. Lets look at his head coaching record.

Minnesota 1992-1993 19-61 1993-1994 20-60;

Vancouver 2000-2001 23-59;

Memphis 2001-2002 23-59;

Oops. If we follow his example and the season were to start on time stats show the Jazz will Win 23 or maybe 24 games this year. What an outstanding decision.

Hey Motorbike, have you noticed the current state of collegiate athletics? Its all about the bucks there, too. Money is doing its fair share of damages to the colleges, as well.

I agree with Doug10. We some assistants that actually had some success as a head coach. Ie, Del Harris, Westphal, etc.

Why would anyone want to leave a full-time college position and enter the NBA unemployed?

Love the Jazz but this lockout is to much. The lowest paid guy on the roster pulls in more than some of the most skilled professionas in our community. Sports is nothing but big business and the Jazz will never win it all. Can't have a small market franchise like Utah in the finals again. Oh for a return of the glory days of Stockton and Malone. One can only hope.

I think you all need to give the guy a chance. He is an upstanding guy that deserves the opportunity. I am a bit taken aback by the idea that some believe you can get a person who has led an NBA team deep into the playoffs to come to Utah to be an assistant coach - ain't going to happen.

I'm a lifetime NC State Fan. Yall are getting a great man. He and THurl and Derrick were so fun to watch in '83. That was a special group of young men. I believe that Coach Lowe came to state from a team (Detroit?) that had just won the NBA title. He has won many times in his life. He is a worker!! His first team at State won games they should not have won. THey were great. After that year the learning curve caught up with him. College is different. GIven a few more years, he would have got it down and done well. But in the ACC there isn't much time to "learn the ropes" playing aganist the DUkes and Carolinas. Yall treat him good. I hope he loves Utah the way I did when I lived there. (SIdney, you need to go up in the mountains a lot , don't stay just in the valley. THere is inspiration in mountains. GOod luck. You will always be loved by the wolfpack faithful)

I agree with Doug this time. We need a big mans coach. Who,s going to coach and develop Favors, Kanter and Jefferson?

On another rare time, I agree with Doug. We need a successful big to work with the young guys. Nothing against Lowe. Where is Parish?

My pick for a big man assistant coach? Rodman. Don't laugh. The guy knows how to block out, rebound, defend, set picks, intimidate. I don't care if he wears a wedding dress to practice.
