Yes. Yes he is. BYU could lend some of their ESPN/byutv money to Hill to help
the removal process otherwise.Now, go get Jimmered.
No he is not the right fit. He is a good NBA assistant. Allow him back in that
Boylen leading the Utes to the Pac12 is too ridiculous of a thought to even
I posted this on another site so apologies if you have already read it:If Utah Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin is looking for an assistant coach with years
and years of NBA experience look no further than right here in town. Jim Boylen
is minutes away at the University of Utah. I am sure with his current situation
there that he would love to return to the NBA without uprooting his family.
Please give him a serious look and then hire him. Chris Hill could then begin
looking for a new head coach. Thanks.
Why is this even a question... I agree with Dutchman though, Boylen might
actually be a good fit with the Jazz with his experience working primarily with
post players with the Houstaon Rockets and the Michigan State Spartans. Boylen whether he can coach or not has lost the confidence in his team,
the fans, and the boosters. He might be able to specialize in one thing, but as
a head coach he's not there. I think its obvious that he can't recruit so thats
another issue he wouldn't have to worry about.Go Ute's
@DutchmanNot a bad idea. Jim has proven to be a great assistant
coach. Then we could give someone the title of "interim" head coach up
on the hill and then find someone to take the helm in the offseason. Oh please, hire Jim Boylen.
As the Yahoo article suggested, Dr. Hill needs to give Boylen a vote of
confidence by extending his contract another 5 years. With that added push, the
2012 Utah recruiting class will surely be the best in Utah history.
ute fans I definately feel sorry for you and your current situation in
basketball but not nearly enough to saddle the rest of us with this guy. I don't
want him anywhere near the Jazz and if any of you are Jazz fans you shouldn't
either.I realize that your judgement is probably clouded because of
your angst over the current state of the utah basketball program, I understand
it I really do, but think about what you're asking for here.There
just is no reason for the rest of us to fall on our swords simply to rescue you
guys. I'm kidding of course about the fall on the sword stuff but
really I don't want Boylen anywhere near the Jazz in any capacity.
For a team (San Diego State) that has no basketball tradition or real
accomplishments it is funny to me that their fans are now so proud and feel they
have the right to dog on Utah. Attention SDSU fans your team has no history of
doing any thing but stinking before and overall your program is a joke compared
to what Utah has accomplished over the years. That said I think Boylen needs to
go as things do not seem to be getting better.
Duckhunter,Boylen seemed to perform just fine in the NBA as an
assistant coach especially at the Houston Rockets. I haven't personally checked
his record I am just going on what I have read and heard. Some guys make great
assistant coaches just not head coaches."I don't want Boylen
anywhere near the Jazz in any capacity". If I subsituted the
name Crowton for Boylen and Oregon or LSU for the name Jazz would that change
your perspective or do you just hate Utah so bad that it clouds your judgment?
DutchmanI agree, Crowton has been a good Offensive Coordinator and
Boylen could probably be a good assistant coach for the Jazz. Supposedly, Boylen specialized in working with big men at Houston. If that's
the case, we've seen almost no improvement with Utah's current big men.
I think that the five year extension suggestion from Yahoo is very wise. The
guy just needs some time to make this work. The fans need to be more patient.
Does anyone have contact information for Tyrone Corbin or Kevin O'Connor? Maybe
even Greg Miller? We need to put the bug in their ear that their is a good
coach already in Salt Lake who would do a great job helping the Jazz big men and
currently needs a way out of his current job to save face. It would help Boylen
get out of a bad situation and help Utah minimize its cost.
Are you ute fans serious? The rest of us don't want to suffer because of the
mess you guys got yourselves into. I'm not worried about it though, the Jazz
aren't going to hire boylen. He's your problem, deal with it.
Rome wasn't build overnight... but over 4 years progress was made. Bolyen has
had plenty of opportunity to show Ute Nation some progress, he has not so
Duckhunter, just as serious as Oregon and LSU were about hiring Gary Crowton.
Careful, your true hatred....I mean colors....are shining through.
Cougs4Life,I was hoping and praying (yes, some Utah fans do pray)
that BYU would give contract extensions of five years to Gary Crowton and Steve
Cleveland. It didn't work out. Sometimes prayers aren't answered in the way we
I'm sure Corbin knows enough people to find someone who he wants to be his
assistant. If it's Boylen, thats fine, but he needs to produce. His decision
will not be based on taken a problem off the Utes hands.Besides,
Boylen has been recruiting Ty's son, and they know each other.===Rock of the Marne is dead on right. SDSU fans went over the line when it comes
to classlessness. Who would have thought a Utah fan would ever complain about
fans with a lack of class, but I do agree with him.Boylen may be a
"dead man walking", or he might be the one who saves the Utes program.
Either way, that was a classless act.Personally, I have been calling
for TC, or anyone else since the end of last season, but then I was a troll,
when in reality, I was just looking for good basketball in the state... Still
would like to see it.
The answer is no. Get rid of him. Maybe you could get Stew from USU. Not sure
what the answer is, but it surely isn't Boylen. Utah has a proud basketball
tradition that should never end up with pathetic seasons like they are currently
@mormon uteSo you want boylen gone because he is running the utah
basketball program into the ground and that isn't "hate"? But I don't
want him anywhere near the Jazz because I think he is a terrible coach so that
is "hate"?That must make perfect sense to a
NO!In the past any BYU team or Utah team that consistantly lost to
the other team, the coach was fired. We will see if that still maters to Utah's
Chris Hill. Hopefully, he won't wait past next Monday to fire Boylen! (and Yes
cougar fans, I do know the Utes will probably lose to you big time on Saturday,
but you can say what ever you want, it doesn't really matter to us what you say
Boylen should stay with the utes. They deserve each other!
Big pay cut for Chow!
I love the photo with this. "Come on Ref ... I know it didn't
go in but just give it to me. I'm begging you."
He is absolutely perfect! utes can't find a better person the lead this team!
I'll donate to the the u just to keep him as the head coach!
Boylen is great for the job. I also thought Ron McBride should have stayed,-so
what do I know!
What is so tough about Chris Hill's decision?Get Boylen out now, not
