I said it was going to happen when I posted yesterday.


Anyways I am in favor looking closely at the assistants from Phoenix or Chicago who know how to coach defense like Thibodeau in Chicago. Either that or wait until Vogel gets fired in Inidana. He can clearly ooach some defense but may end up getting scapegoated for a bunch of selfish players fighting for stats to get bigger contracts. Not his fault and he is already a proven product.

Glad Lindsey pulled the trigger though.

All that being said, unproven coaches are a crapshoot but I have seen some others post ideas like George Karl. He is a regular season proven success and a post season failure. Not interested in that thanks.

Anxious to see any other good suggestions.


Too bad. I liked Coach Corbin. I wish him well.

Coach K on the hill may get a look.

He is a good guy but not a good enough coach. I wished we could have hired Jeff Hornacek. The Jazz management team is at times to passive.

In a results-based business, those who don't get results finish last, even if they are a nice guy.

Thanks Ty. I always appreciated your candor in speaking with the media. You were given a tough hand and played it well. Best of luck and hope to see you get another HC position!!


Thanks Corbin,

But in the end you were not the right man for the job. The Jazz should have done this midway through the season and committed to playing the youth even if (hopefully) they lost more games. We may have set ourselves back if we miss out on the player that we really want.


Of the guys on the list according the the article I liked Alex Jensen and Larry Brown, sure he is old but he is clearly a winner. Please don't take Coach K from the U, I'd rather they be good than the Jazz.

Tough to blame the coach when management unloads all the talent. 7 ex-Jazz men are in the playoffs as starters, with Milsap making his first All-Star game and Al Jefferson averaging 22 points a game. And Korver was too good a shooter for our team evidently and Wes Mathews was expendible. Never mind D-Will and Boozer....

I'm sure there are a plethora of top-notch coaches who are chomping at the bit to come live in Utah, work for the best ownership group in the NBA, and help this future all-star cast of players win multiple NBA championships. The hard part will be picking just one.

Now ... Jazz management, please take your time and hire the right guy. Don't jump the gun and do an immediate hire, until you've reviewed all the candidates that are out there. Also, advertise the job and see who is interested. You never know who might pop up on the radar.

Yahoo reporting that the leading candidate is....Jim Boylen.

I think I just saw Dennis Lindsey chasing Tyrone Corbin's car down the street, shouting "wait, Ty, come back! I didn't mean it!"

And just you watch...we'll trade our best player Gordon Hayward this off season.

Never seemed to be the right fit. The Jazz are a year late. Hornacek was the guy, and Lindsay let him get away. Having said that, are we sure Lindsay is the right guy, seeing he let Hornacek be snatched away?

@Brave Sir Robin

I think there are bigger nightmares than Jim Boylen. Imagine the reaction when Dennis Lindsey announces that Greg Ostertag is the new coach.


Is Ty the only blame here? Randy Rigby has to be on the hot seat..

Salt Lake City, UT

Gordon Monson and Jimmy Boylen would get along well. Please, not Boylen. Had my fill.


Or Jimmer.

Is this a joke? Of all the fish in the sea for an NBA job, you've got to be kidding me.
