As a Golden State Warriors fan living in Utah I have suffered a lot over the years until recently. Not a Jazz fan at all. I couldn't stand Corbin when he was a player let alone a coach. With that said it is pretty tough to be an NBA Coach these days with all these
rich kids. They rule the roost over the coach which is backwards and sad.
Corbin's biggest downfall is not developing his players.
I always respected Coach Sloan because he disciplined his players until he couldn't any more.

So Corbin is shoved down on the sword made for Lindsey. What a joke the jazz have become.

Jim Boylin would be the worst possible choice for jazz coach. He isn't liked by ute or cougar fan. There is nothing Lindsey could do to alienate fans more than hire this crazy madman. Please Dennis, say it ain't so!!!

Best of luck to Ty Corbin. He really is a class act. I trust this front office. They'll make a good coaching choice. The article showed a little too much love for Boylen. I thought he was hilarious and a passionate guy when he was at Utah, but sorry, he would be a disaster. He's not at all the right guy. You need someone who commands respect, is a hard worker and is smart. Even as a cougar fan, and maybe this is premature, but I find Alex Jensen an intriguing coach. Hope the best for Ty and the Jazz.

Look to the San Antonio Spurs assistants mentored by Popovich, ask Pop who he might suggest, as he is currently the best Coach in the NBA. Ask Karl Malone, maybe he'd come in and have Stock be a Co-Coach? It's gotta be somebody who really loves basketball...Frank gave the job to Jerry, so ask Frank who the next Coach otta be, he got it right. Get some professional opinions in on this...or just take mine: Randy Rahe of Weber State.

Corbin wasn't going to survive the season even if the defense was better. He wasn't Lindsay's guy. Plain and simple. Lindsay's going to put his stamp on the team now. Will it work? You gotta hope. Look at the team. Right now, there's no one on who's taking charge. Trey Burke could be one, but they need another and I don't see him on this roster.

The Jazz have been in the dumpster since Jerry left. New blood needed through out the organization including the roster.

I desperately hope the Jazz management step up big time here. It makes a lot of sense to me that they lay out some serious cash to land as good a coach as there is available so as not to waste another year on the development a young team. I read above that several rookie coaches are apparently being considered? Why would we as fans want to have another head coach with less experience in his job than our young-but-talented players have at theirs?

Greg, please - drop a few million, lock up the best coach you can get.

Too bad for Ty. I wonder how he would with all the players the Jazz let go last year. As far as I can tell most of those ex jazzmen are playing in the playoffs with their new teams. The Jazz castoffs like the so called no defense playing Al Jefferson are shining with their new teams. The Hawks look like last the Jazz of old. The Jazz are looking for something that doesn't exist. There is no well known, great coach out there who is going to coach this bunch to the playoffs. Any great coach would be crazy to accept this job. It could be a career killer. Even Larry Brown is not crazy enough to get involved with this team. I see an old buddy of our new GM getting the job. Some dude that needs a job and who is owed a favor. Good luck whoever you are.

All I can say is if they hire Jim Boylen I will be beside myself as a big Jazz fan. Go get Jeff Van Gundy if you want to build a culture of defense. His New York teams were always very solid defensive teams and he did well in Houston.

See ya later Coach Corbin...He will still be paid for the balance of his contract, even when he is sitting at home watching the Jazz on his HD TV...I have quit being interested in the team since the Stockton/Malone era, and we lost the great Larry Miller. I can't even name the players anymore. I am predicting that Utah will lose this NBA franchise in 10 years or less, because we won't be able to keep up with the market, pay the players, and fill the arena seats with fans. Paul McCartney, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry are great concerts, but they are not enough to pay the bills to keep Energy Solutions Arena open, and it will eventually face the wrecking ball. We don't have a pioneer like Larry Miller here anymore that will invest in another NBA team, and we will not have another one in Utah. Start learning to play "Taps" because the Utah Jazz is slowly dying.....

@ Final Word,

When Gordon Hayward is your leading scorer, second in assists and third in rebounding...then he's probably your best player. He should be the 2nd or 3rd option ON A GOOD TEAM, but we you see, we don't have one. We trade all our best players away. But it is fun to watch D-Will, Boozer, Korver, Carroll, Jeffersen, Milsap, Mathews et al all starting for good teams in the playoffs.

Corbin and Lindsey both knew what was going to happen last summer unless the Jazz had a winning season, that is why Corbin kept playing Williams and Jefferson, first in an effort to win and later hoping for a miracle or just plain stubbornness. The crying shame is that the Jazz could have won and would have with a decent coach.

The idea of Boylen becoming the Jazz Head Coach makes me chuckle out loud... I'm not a Jazz fan but it would be absolutely amazing to see a coach that failed so miserably as the utes coach come back as a Professional Coach in the same town... Any one on the list would be twice the coach that Boylen was...

IMHO, Lionel Hollins is by far the best coach on the list... He resurrected a failing Memphis Grizzlies Franchise and took them to the Conference Championships... He turned a laughing stock into a contender with basically the same players... He's a proven commodity. Unfortunately he was ousted because he ran cross-wise with Ownership Politics.

The Van Gundy's would seem to be next up followed by the young coach out of Iowa State (Hoiberg)... Hoiberg reminds me of a young Jerry Sloan.

As for Corbin, I think that he and the franchise may have been helped (from a marketing standpoint if nothing else) had they acquired Fredette from Sacramento... I think that would have been a "win-win" for everybody.
