Coach K up on the hill just signed the 7'0" center from Austria that Cal and Arizona wanted. It was just announced. With one of the best recruiting classes in the nation and the PAC 12 coming to Utah this season I doubt coach K is interested in the Jazz job.

Jim Boylin, really? That guy has a proven record in Utah, except it is hard for Jazz players to transfer to other schools when they realize their head coach is a poor coach.

Best of luck, Ty! You've always been a class act both as player and coach. I wanted to see you succeed with the Jazz as much as anyone, but such is the NBA life. Team management certainly didn't leave you much to work with this season.

Of the candidates, I will take Van Gundy. I'd also take his brother.

I was a huge Boylen fan, but he wasn't a college coach. I'm not sure he's the man for the job as the Jazz's coach, but I'm also not overly excited about any of the possible coaches mentioned.

All the best to Corbin.

I have believed all along that the Jazz made the wrong choice for Head Coach to replace Jerry Sloan, Jeff Hornacek made so much more sense to me, and see what he has accomplished in Phoenix!!! I hope that the net is thrown out wider than Jim Boylan, although most of his career has been an Asst. in the NBA he didn't do very well with UofU and he will be taking over a team with a lot of young players, we need someone that is respected and can deal with the young players!!! GOOD LUCK Ty you are a great guy, just wasn't a great fit

Yes, pick Boylen. He carried the Utes to new heights with his amazing coaching abilities. You have got to be kidding me! I don't care how powerful his friends are in the front office, that would be heaping insult to injury for the Jazz. Boylen's best quality is the faces he pulls when given a bad call. Why not see if Jim Carrey is interested in the job. He's better at overacting.

Boylen could not even make it as a college head coach, one of the worst Ute coaches ever and was also vindictive for losing his job by telling the couple decent remaining players that they should leave the program also! He left the cupboard bear (to say the least!) to try and hurt the program further for years to come. If Lindsey brings this guy on because he is a former friend of his, i will officially boycott all Jazz games and start a Fire Dennis Lindsey campaign. There is no room for nepotism in this coaching hire, we need someone that has a proven track record as a coach that can take charge and help mentor the young guns! I will not sit through ANY more years like this past years. Too bad they missed out on Hornaceck! All the fans knew he was the best choice long ago!

Even though Corbin is a very nice guy, he couldn't elicit consistency from his players. We all knew this was a rebuilding year and the Jazz wouldn't make the playoffs. But what we did expect was some steady improvement. The 2nd half of the season actually dropped off substantially instead of showing any improvement whatsoever. Not acceptable. As such, changing coaches is the right decision.

Like others, I really wish we had targeted and kept Jeff Hornacek as our next head coach. In retrospect, it was a big mistake allowing him to go to Phoenix after having him on the Jazz payroll and not grooming him as our next head coach. He is obviously a great coach and will end up as the NBA Coach of the Year at the end of the season.

Hopefully, the right amount of time and effort will be put into getting the best possible candidate for our next head coach. A lot is at stake with a lot of the natives (fans) getting restless. Having a change of coaches will spur substantial new interest in our young team.

Uhhhhh, if your supposed "best player" can't shoot worth beans or as well as some of his teammates then maybe he isn't your best player?

Regardless of what you may think of Hayward he did not prove himself to be:

1. A go-to player down the stretch
2. A vocal leader
3. A good shooter

With those proven results I seriously doubt Lindsey is going to pay him like the best player on any other team because he isn't. He is a 2nd or third option.

Seems to me nobody ought to be losing alot of sleep if Gordon is part of as sign-and-trade to another team. He clearly did not take over the locker room leadership position that ownership offered him.

As far as a coach is concerned people seem to be under the impression they have just begun looking. Yoo-hoo!!! Lindsey never offered Corbin an extension at the beginning of this season for a reason and he has been looking for a coaching candidate since then.

Like the Jazz are going to call up the media and tell them who they are looking at. We know they love their secrecy.


Please not Boylen!! Why is he even being considered? Terrible coach at the U.

Saint George, UT

How do we know that Corbin's replacement hasn't already been picked. I don't think George Karl is the one due to health problems

Grantsville, UT

Corbin will likely get a good assistant position with a team. He will have time to review what he did right and wrong. But more importantly, decide what kind of players he can coach so he can select the right fit for his next head job. How many head coaches have been let go just to find themselves in a more suitable position later in their careers,,,Sloan, Rivers.


I can't wait for the Jazz press conference to announce Jim Boylen the new head coach and he begins his opening remarks by saying to Gordon Monson, "Nice of you to show up". I would love it. Jim! Jim! Jim! Jim!

Temecula, CA

Best defensive players on the team are Favors and Hayward. Hayward will be a Jazzman next year, as long as his agent doesn't ask for too much. Burks is improving on defense, but I'm not sure about Kanter. He doesn't get above the rim much and doesn't block many shots...look for Gobert and Favors to play together more and more. I wouldn't be surprised to see Kanter moved for a long SF who can shoot if the Jazz don't land Andrew Wiggins in the draft. As for the coach, no idea. Lindsay knows where he is going, I think.

Spanish Fork, UT

Not Boylen. Good grief. See what he did to the Utah Utes program.

Sturgis, MS

Lindsey has had his man for a year now. Don't know how long it will take him to trot him out on the podium. We just had to endure Corbin's contract. Sorry for Corbin but he could have done a lot better with what he had.

Question now is: Are they going to let Hayward walk or commit to him for the future?


Boylen was an absolute train wreck at the U. If Lindsay is even considering a conversation with Boylen, then he needs to be relieved of his duties. It's taken Coach K three years to clean up the Boylen dumpster fire.

Boylen is not capable of being in charge. He might be a serviceable assistant but Head Coach, no way.

Provo, UT

If Tom Izzo is seriously a candidate, this search should already be over.

Tokyo, Japan

Really? there are still fans think that we would be in the playoffs with Paul Millsap and Al Jeff?...wait...last year we had them...we even had mo williams...oh yeah...we didnt make it...we are in the West people...the competition here is tougher than where the ex Jazz Players went...Demarre, Korver, Millsap...Atlanta...not even above 500 team...Big Al...Charlotte...Barely 500...those two teams...would barely get a sniff at the 8th seed in the west...we could continue crying over spilled milk...we have this current team now...this is the Jazz now...and they need someone that would coach them...we need teachers with a good grasp of Xs and Os...let's just hope we get a good one...

Cowboy Dude

Why did the article bury Tom Izzo's name in a bottom of a paragraph?
If Tom is really a candidate, seems it would be at the top of the article.
